I feel this knowledge is priceless when it comes to communicating with developers and designers, as it allows me to talk in the same language they are accustomed to. I thrive upon providing companies with an online presence they deserve, putting my skills to the test to help expand businesses and brands.

My time keeping is exemplary when working with tight deadlines. I can work well in a team environment and Iā€™m also confident to work alone.
