Professional Description

I love creating and brainstorming ways of improving systems and products. I thrive by transforming simple items into useful things that people truly value. My engineering, problem-solving way of thinking has given me the opportunity to do this professionally at small and large companies.

I greatly enjoy interacting with people, which has allowed me to refine one of my strongest skills—sales. Meeting new people and learning new things has driven my understanding of the importance of communication and other soft skills while helping others.

If you believe what I believe, I’d love to hear from you.
