jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.  – William Shakespeare

25+ Years Experience 

I’m an experienced IT professional who has had the great opportunity to find myself in a variety of industries, project types and positions throughout my career. I have been fortunate enough to see projects through from beginning to end in a variety of different roles. I am a seasoned business analyst who also has project/product management experience. I began my career in software development and quickly escalated to project leader and project manager of various project teams. I have been focusing on my own consulting company for the past years, everything from programming to business analysis to also running my own freelance graphic company! I have a very analytical mind with the fortunate addition of being extremely creative and a dedicated problem solver. I thrive on understanding the big picture problems and finding both ways of solving these, as well as dividing it into manageable stages for development, testing and tracking. I am able to precisely vocalize these steps, goals and outcomes to both end stakeholders as well as engineering teams!

Rock Band Merch App - Portfolio Study

Google UX Design Course Project, to design a Merch app for a band.  The app differs from other band merch apps as it allows customers to pickup their pre-purchased merch at the concert, avoiding lineups during intermission and deciding last minute at concerts.  Users also wanted the ability to pre-order and ship their concert merch so it could be used on the day of the concert.
