I am a meticulous and methodical individual who has fully commited themself to the FDM training program, achieving a distinction on all of my projects. I genuinely believe in the value created by the testing process, and appreciate the quality it brings to the final product.
In my spare time, I taught himself how to build computers and troubleshoot problems, which demonstrates my ability to quickly grasp new concepts, that I am not afraid of a fresh challenge, and that I am a natural problem-solver; all of which are crucial attributes for testers.

I'm an affable team-player, having participated in projects under the agile methodology and am always willing to put in extra hours to complete tasks for the benefit of the group. My written and spoken communication is of a high level, which stems from my strong academic background and private school education.
