Born and raised in Texas, I've spent the past decade working on both coasts including Portland, Oregon and two stints in New York City. With ten years of experience working with startups to fortune 500 companies, I bring a diverse set of skills to any project. During this time I have worked independently, lead small teams, as well as worked hand in hand with all levels of leadership to achieve desired results. I’m easy going, hard working, and always open to new and exciting opportunities.
