About me

Over the last 15 years I have worked primarily as a GM for larger retailers like Home Depot and Lowes. In that time I have focused on developing my skill set in project management by leading multiple store openings/ remodels and large scale company training role outs. Along with the daily planning and organization of the stores, I utilized my soft skills working with large groups of employees and the public. Some of the most fulfilling times came from the mentoring of others and problem solving.

I became interested in software development as I enjoy challenges and was wanting to spend more time at with my family. Software development affords me a better outlook and uses my organizational and time management skills. I enjoy constantly learning new concepts and figuring out solutions to problems. I am excited to utilize my past experience with the technical skills I have gained and look forward to continued learning and growth.
