A natural fixer and ‘doer’ - I’m drawn to high pressure creative industries. As a full stack web developer/designer I re-invigorate, elevate and produce results that are measurable. For example, at TomboyX, I created and designed a new commerce site that led to successful initial funding efforts, and set the standards for future collections. During my time
A natural fixer and ‘doer’ - I’m drawn to high pressure creative industries. As a full stack web developer/designer I re-invigorate, elevate and produce results that are measurable. For example, at TomboyX, I created and designed a new commerce site that led to successful initial funding efforts, and set the standards for future collections. During my time in F&B operations, my zeal for efficiency and streamlining resulted in a 5.6% profit over two months.
I'm looking for client facing work in the areas of new technology, new media, and/or food. Who doesn't love food?!
