Summary

Dedicated and loyal, with a burning desire to roll up my sleeves and do what it takes to get things done. I have a deep passion and fascination for technology and its power to affect change. I am a problem solver that truly enjoys finding better and faster solutions. I have a strong belief that technology should be simple to use, and when things don't work as expected, getting help should be a pleasant experience.

I am seeking a position where I can leverage my passion for technology and years of experience to help those around me reduce their workload through process analysis and automation.
