More about me
I am a strong willed and driven person who will take an active role in the development of ideas and projects, though I am relativistic in my point of view and take on the thoughts of others. I'm committed and hardworking and pride myself in a job well done. I like a challenge and to imagine and do things I've not seen done before. I'm interested in how computers and digital technologies can be used in new and interesting ways. I don't mind getting my hands dirty in the process of my job, and will do as much as is possible to make the project happen.
