Personal Profile

I am a curious and collaborative computer engineer. I have experience in business, technical knowledge and mechanical ability. Growing up in the family business I learned the importance of customer service and working with people. Repairing and replacing parts in cars developed my problem solving skills as well as my analytical and mechanical ability. I learned to be adaptable and persistent through my experiences in camping, hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding and traveling. Through playing competitive tennis, both singles and doubles, I learned to compete with integrity, the value of teamwork, and the importance of communications. As a quick learner and thinker who enjoys solving problems, I look forward to new challenges.
