About Me

Currently I am a freelance web developer. I was previously employed as a Front-End Software Engineer. My responsibilities included UX / UI standardization, API generation, building Amazon Web Services environments and creating a Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment pipeline. I have also worked as a Senior Software Engineer at a multi-billion dollar automotive parts manufacturer. I was a project manager and full stack developer. From project management to program writing, I was a valuable resource to a very large profitable corporation. I have a talent for generating ideas, solving problems and managing complex projects. I have adopted useful skills from my work experiences and have collected several certifications along the way. I approach every day with an open outlook and never shy away from a challenge. I enjoy team dynamics and guiding others to achieve their goals. Continuous education is important for me as experience and knowledge produce quality leaders. My goal is to stay challenged and to provide a valuable service to my employer.
