About Me

Consultant | PT. CEO/CTO/COO for Hire | Web Developer | Prev. Startup Rnkd #484 on 2016 INC.5000

-I am an entrepreneur of 16 years that has worn every hat and performed every duty necessary to grow a tech company 700%, to #484 on the 2016 INC5000 list and grow several small businesses to fruition.
-My goal is to utilize my business and technical acumen to produce at the most efficient levels possible, no matter the role or circumstance. Personally pivoting into web development as the next step in my career was not a hard choice considering I was personally involved with building out 6 web platforms and even more websites.
-Having recently relocated to the Atlanta area, I’m hoping to expand my network in this bustling tech hub and find great opportunities to utilize my skills.
-An accurate depiction of my experience from running a tech company to coordinating with offshore developers and spending nearly half a million dollars with service providers, through Upwork (Elance), cannot be quantified in this short summary. Contact Me to Talk More!.
