Summary

Enthusiastic, experienced UI developer seeks position that allows for growth in knowledge and efficacy. I am the kind of dev that allows you to have your cake and eat it too: I love both the big picture and the nitty gritty details. I am deeply passionate about knowledge sharing. By raising everyone’s base level of understanding, we build a stronger foundation from which to reach for greater heights. I thrive on cross-functional teams; interdisciplinary collaboration is catnip to me. I constantly seek relationships among people, information, and technology.
