Let's work together! I'm always happy to chat about interesting ideas, new collaborations or share Netflix binge-watching confessions.
My attention to detail is on the verge of being annoying. The hardest person to please is myself as I constantly strive for perfection. But while I take deep pride in my work, my ideas for improvement are stacking up before stuff even gets out the door.
"I am a perfectionist" would be an understatement
I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn't for my internal quest for knowledge, learning and self improvement. I actively seek and engage in learning to support my goals and interests. Trial and error have their place, but I've discovered that harnessing the knowledge and wisdom of those before me is an accelerator to becoming the best.
I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge
I have no aspirations of being the solo rock star. Instead, I thrive on the energy and momentum created by a highly engaged and collaborative team. Sure I have great ideas and can produce great results, but I’ve learned that even the best ideas are even better when they are fostered and matured within a team of talented, passionate individuals. To work any other way would be to settle for mediocrity.
Isolation is a self-defeating dream
I have found my passion and absolutely love what I do. I know this is a huge component of my current happiness and success, and I can’t believe I actually get paid to do what I do. I have found my niche and I love it.
I can't believe I actually get paid to do this
It’s crunch time. I'm under pressure and the deadline is rapidly approaching. I know what it takes to get things done on time, and part of me thrives on these periodic moments of truth. Sure, it could be better. It could be closer to perfect, but nothing is going to stop me from getting it out the door.
