I like to dissect the technical requirements to any project so I can assemble which technologies are most appropriate.
When reviewing a project I often find recommendations to give back to the client/designer of new features that are available. This way they can decide to make an update to their product before development foundations are concrete.
I like working in team environments, especially when individual strengths have been established. Understanding delegation is a fundamental part of my skillset.

As a small business Owner & Operator I help bring in projects and monitor many of our day-to-day operations. I like to make sure things are running smoothly and that the work being done at our office is on course to be sent to the client by the proposed deadline.
