I am a hard working individual that is self motivated. I absolutely love working with people, I feel that there is strength in numbers, programs get done faster, there are less bugs and the design is typically well thought out. My real passion is for product design and the business side of products. I am able to understand problems and see problems before we get to them. I enjoy working and I enjoy my life outside of work, this mentality has made me a hard worker who can remain cheerful under stress.
Technical Lead @ • Work in parallel with the PM to make the technical details of projects, problems, and solution clearly understood.

This is one of my favorite projects that I have worked on, I was able to coordinate with engineers and understand what is included to make this application work, what information does the underlying program need to run. Once I gained this knowledge I was able to sit down and figure out how we could push most of this thinking to the software or the database to create an extremely well thought out and easy to use application. I enjoyed being able to design this program from scratch and take the application to non-technical users and see how they interacted with it, then be able to make design decisions based on what I found from the users.
The end product is extremely easy to use and hides all the technical information that a user would typically have to enter and setup to make a remote desktop connection. Of course we made all of those little details available in the advanced settings for the technical users that want to set things up just the way they want. From January 2013 to June 2013 (6 months) President & CEO @ Nevewear is a skate, snowboard and surf clothing company that I created and ran through my schooling. I had two partners and I was primarily responsible for the finances, product design, company decisions, website and assisted in marketing and sales.
Nevewear was a successful company, we were able to get our company off the ground and profitable in a short amount of time. This took a lot of learning in the area of marketing. I learned to recognize our target market, which events to attend, how to get product into stores as well as create an attractive e-commerce site that attracted customers. I was also able to expand the company every year, bringing in more product and selling that product. I also was able to learn how to organize a companies finances. The skills I learned from running Neverwear are skills that are going to serve me the rest of my life. From December 2009 to March 2013 (3 years 4 months)
