Objective

With my web developer background and years of experience as a manager I can convey the client’s needs to the technical team in an effective manner, as well as outline technical limitations or concerns to the client during initial meetings. The ability to be timely and effective in relaying information between all the parties concerned is what I believe to be the cornerstone to running an efficient project.
