I work hard and I love to work on projects. Figuring out the best ways to crack a given nut, and doing my part to bring about great results, makes me happy. I am a combination of "people person" who also happens to have fun obsessing on low-level technical implementation.
I enjoy the process of planning and leading a team to build an engineering project. Agile is a wonderful way to work. And for projects where it's needed, I creatie easily understood Gantt charts. I like writing documentation and specifications. I find writing code and testing fully addictive. QA is vital in any company and it's something I've enjoyed spearheading. It makes me happy to help my coworkers and the clients.
At entrepreneur meetings, I've regularly asked for advice on business approaches, on the ideal technology to use, PR, funding, and a wide variety of challenges that startups face. I have notable experience with almost every skill needed to create a startup.
