I spent seven years as an independent contractor helping various organizations reach their goals with effective technology and communications. Working with companies large and small has helped me develop a diverse skill set in graphic design, application development, marketing, writing, and advertising. I bring an integrated understanding of user experience, software architecture, business technology, content, operations, and promotions.
