I'm an inherently curious person. This drives me to learn how things work, and how to solve problems. I'm entirely self-taught: from compiling Linux hardware drivers to Adobe Illustrator to non-linear statistical regressions.
My strengths lie in a coding & deployment-process background. My values for that include favoring flexibility instead of overly-precise, over-engineered setups. When it comes to data, it's all about being test-driven.
Recently, I took the Strength Finders test and a majority of my strengths are strategic. Here are some scary-accurate descriptions:
- "you work seriously at something when you have defined the specific objective"
- "you give credit to certain individuals who make key points that advance everyone's understanding of a particular theory, concept, or idea.
- "able to find connections between seemingly disparate phenomena"
- "takes psychological ownership of what they say they will do"
I've always worked with designers and often directly with clients, keeping me in touch with aesthetic sense, and free from technical jargon.
For the past 6 years, I've worked remotely for a pretty great ad/design firm. I've had the freedom and responsibility to test out ideas and learn from a wide variety of over 80 client sites. What you see below are focused examples of my own sheer curiosity.
With over a decade of web development experience, I'd like to continue to support other developer and analytic teams to improve their work, by supplying them with data and resources to prioritize, automate, and motivate their tasks. After all, everyone likes to see their work having an effect.
So, what problems does your team have? I'd love to be a part of the solution!
