Design. Development. Project management.

Relationship building. Writing.


Diversity. Adaptability. Comprehension. These three words are essential to my work style.

I am a project manager at my core but I also have experience in design, production and writing. I possess a solid background in training materials and my understanding of structure requirements are valuable in print and web content development. My diverse background is an asset to those who are seeking a well-versed individual.
