About me

My name is Michael Walker, and I am a Front-End Software Developer and Product Manager. I enjoy working with and managing groups both large and small and awarded for organizational and managerial skills on a local and national scale. I strive to work well independently as well as within a team. For me, programming and product management can often lead to a creative and fun process, I approach each project like a puzzle and finding the best way to achieve the project goal. Being able to creatively develop a product while working with a team to deliver a successful production is something I aim for in each project. Cultivating a creative environment and solving complex issues was a skill that I honed while in theatre technology. Rendering 3-D designs in AutoCAD and coming up with elegant solutions to design challenges is what sparked my passion for software development. I am light-hearted and dedicated to helping the growth of any team. I am very eager to bring new and creative ideas to the workplace!
