I like to think of myself as a creative person and a problem solver. I enjoy the challenge and opportunities that a new project brings. I have taken part in projects ranging from user experience of a physical product to email campaigns, web design, A/B testing, and product management. By far my favorite is thinking through the strategy for a particular project. I like seeing the scale of an idea but also scoping the work to move the project forward. I don’t want to just make another pretty something, I want to participate in projects that have real impact to the users lives.
Outside of my work I am just an average guy. I like cooking, painting, and building things. I currently live in Vista, CA. Feel free to contact me with any questions about my work at firstname.lastname@example.org
