Even from a young age, I had an affinity with technology, and was always figuring out ways to make things better for myself and others. Throughout the years I gained more experience with everything from programming to media production, and most recently user experience.
Through that grounding in numerous disciplines, I have become a skilled and seasoned technologist with a broad range of skills. I have delivered multiple projects for a range of business categories successfully and utilize technology to bring visions and designs to life.
