Summary

I am a 26 year old software engineer who likes taking charge and delivering outcomes while solving meaningful problems with people, for people.

For me technology is an enabler - not the primary driver - that can be leveraged to solve problems and grow the business. 

Bringing in a "yes we can" attitude to the team and being able to grow leaps and bounds in short spans of time, are my trademarks.

My core competency lies within the .Net stack, however, my consulting background allows me to comfortably pick up new tools/technologies - even in pressure situations.
