I've done it all, from design work to starting and managing a dying business and making it sour into a giant conglomerate. I'm thrill seeker! 

I've launched startup's from websites, games, software and hardware; I made them soar into giant corporations. My last application went viral which had over 530,000,000 users & was sold for for a very large sum, if you want to know more just ask! I'm Always looking for a challenge! Troubleshooting isn't a chore, it's a mission I enjoy undertaking.. I always look to learn new skills & want to expand on the skills I already have.

I'm a team player and enjoy working with others but I if needed I can work solo
