🚩 I am able to “wear many hats” in the context of web technologies.  I love the complexity of starting with a blank canvas and developing thoughtful platforms. I do this by creating user flows and building custom front end experiences that harness the powerful back end capabilities of modern digital tools.

I want to understand how things work (to look behind the curtain) and then use those mechanisms to make logical and efficient solutions that are easy to use and drive business.  I am hungry for research and passionate about applying knowledge into the real world, i.e. marketplace.
