Experience / Work History
Des Moines, Iowa
I am looking for challenges in a tech related field. Specifically one that employs my outgoing personality. I truly enjoy working with people and at the same time have a significant understanding of the back end of many web technologies. This affords me the unique opportunity to not only translate between management and implementors but I am also able to see what questions and steps may be missing from a project conversation. Ultimately I would like the opportunity to work with clients and developers alike.
