Use and expand my experience as an IT Director, Development Manager, and Systems Analyst to improve the customer experience and increase profitability of a customer-facing service while mentoring and building a technology team to further these goals beyond what I could accomplish alone.
I enjoy learning new technologies, building tools that make future development easier and eliminating repetitive, manual tasks. Even moreso, I love sharing these tools and techniques with others to help build skills among programming teams.
