Professional Profile

I have been working as a U.X. Designer and Web Developer for the past 9 years, most recently focusing on mobile application development.

Throughout my career I have moved and grown from a web developer, to a team lead, to agile change management coach, and back to what I love development and design.

I have a passion for clean simple design, high quality software development, and the excitement and fun of working in small, empowered, energetic teams.

I am a big supporter of agile methodologies, and have co-presented at the Agile Tour 2012, and 2011.

I am currently seeking a position with a company that shares my goals and passions. That will allow me to continue on my journey, learn, help others learn… and most importantly have a blast doing it.
