As an aspiring project manager I have been able to mold the needs of an organization to reflect their mission goals into a canvas of code. I find fulfillment in collaborating with progressive individuals, dedicated to improving the human condition, by applying solutions using current technologies. My goals through web design and project management are to move society to progress forward with a global perspective and intrinsically smarter.
