About me

I would describe myself as a left brained person with the ability to cross over into the right. I enjoy solving problems and creating things. I have a good understanding of the web and the e-commerce process. I can wrap my brain around projects, and plan and develop websites for scalability and growth, as well as manage marketing and SEO with little supervision. I am a hard worker and a self-starter. I don’t need a lot of supervision, and I love to build business. I feel that people like to be around me and I certainly like working with others. I am applying for this job because I think that I would be a valuable asset for your company as part of a team.

    I started as pre-med, but it didn't fit me. I then almost finished a Bachelor's Degree in Business, but while I was working on some accounting homework, I found myself envying my friend who was cranking out a website. That next semester, I took two web classes and was hooked. From that point on, I knew my focus and ended up finishing a degree in Computer Information Technology.
