About

Through my 10 years of experience in web development, I have acquired a wide range of technical and human skills. My colleagues and superiors consistently recognize my natural organizational skills. The designers I work with appreciate my obsessive accuracy when bringing their designs to life. My current goal is to join a motivated team of high standards to synergize towards a meaningful and impactful mission.
