Profile: I’m an engineer/designer at heart and enjoy building and designing things, be they applications, user interfaces, or systems. I understand how systems work, and can envision improvements easily. I’m technically advanced, and also able to translate complex concepts into simple language. I enjoy a challenge, and I strive for not only functional perfection, but also for beauty in design.
