About me

Creator. Problem Solver. Worker.  As a former 3D designer specializing in visitor experiences, I solidified a reputation for consistently delivering effective, on-time, on-budget solutions to projects ranging in scope from mundane to multi-million dollar while operating within a high-intensity marketing environment.  I am exited as I apply those same qualities to my career in software engineering.
