The Digital Strategy team is responsible for building a cohesive brand online, including the design and development of the core cmu.edu website.
The team works closely with the university's Computing Services to offer a central content management system (CMS) and design templates that can be used by units across the institution.
Senior Director, Digital Strategy
Senior Digital Project Manager
Amber spearheads project management for the digital strategy team. Fueled by coffee and happy developers, she believes in the power of well-planned projects achieved through active communication, supportive education, clear workflows and progressive technology. She has a degree in public relations from Penn State and previously worked in the digital division of a regional retail brand, as well as an Internet marketing agency. When taking a breather from wrangling run-away processes, she’s likely to be knitting up a storm, racing off on weekend road trips with her husband or reading a classic novel.
User Interface Designer & Developer
Steve produces the university’s web design standards, designs the content management system templates and helps to maintain cmu.edu. He has an associate’s degree in multimedia from Pittsburgh Technical College and a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and music technology from CMU. Steve is a multi-genre music artist and poet, loves Jesus, and lives in the South Hills of Pittsburgh with his wife, children and pit bull.

Focusing on content strategy, Amanda builds and edits various digital properties, using analytics to enhance sites’ performance and create an improved user experience. She also supports communications work for the Provost’s Office, as well as other leadership initiatives. Before joining Carnegie Mellon University, Amanda worked in web content creation/management, marketing and public relations roles for Point Park University, Gateway Rehab and Temple University Health System. She earned a B.A. in public relations from York College of Pennsylvania and an M.A. in journalism and mass communication from Point Park University. Amanda lives in Shaler with her husband and children and loves to dance, play tennis and attend as many Janet Jackson concerts as possible.
Digital Content Manager
Technical Program Manager
Greg manages the development team and provides direction for technical projects in digital strategy. Coming from the world of consultancy and agency work, Greg has experience in designing and developing applications and websites for many industries, but especially higher education. In his free time, Greg writes, directs and performs comedy and, when the reviews are bad, retreats to the hills to hike.
Sr. Front End Developer
Building on 10 years of experience, Chris specializes in front-end web development, developer operations and research and development. As part of the Digital Strategy team, he applies his skills to the university’s enterprise content management system, and to the critical path of CMU’s web presence as a whole. He loves designing workflows, systems and picking out subtle details in designs. When he’s not being a keyboard cowboy, you can find him in a CrossFit gym performing deadlifts or walking on his hands.
