Strengths

More than writing code for computers to understand—I consider clear communication with the people around me a valuable asset and one of my greatest strengths. From explaining complex web concepts to designers, to providing rationale behind design decisions to developers, I find that I speak both languages pretty fluently. Building on the web is a vast and complicated job, but I enjoy learning the different aspects of it.
