Specialities

Translating between Design and Development

Often serving as a liaison between design and development teams, my background in both helps me foster communication between the two. I effectively help explain the root concerns and goals for each side to arrive at solutions that work for all.

Strategic Thinking & Technical Architecture

Recalling past pain points and anticipating future opportunities simultaneously is one of my core strengths. I have a knack for selecting the right suite of technologies and strategies to meet today’s goals and ease tomorrow’s maintenance.

Data-informed Thinking

Whether running a growth marketing initiative or settling an intrateam stylistic dispute, I believe in letting objective data be the guide. After identifying key metrics, I collect and analyze the data, let the results inform any decisions, and then start the process again.

Rampant Curiosity

As a friend of new ideas, I’m always excited to learn about and try new technologies, tools, or ways of thinking about problems. This has also produced a broad spectrum of personal knowledge from which I can draw to help solve problems.
