Summary

I strive to continuously learn and advance my skills. I respect open minded discussions and love to bounce ideas between my peers. When it comes to work, I make sure to research the best possible outcome before officially starting on any task. Most of my research comes down to building and designing applications to scale for the long-term. I try to be as responsive and keep up with communication as much as possible to enhance productivity flow in any workplace.
