  • Team leadership. I’ve built and managed multi-disciplinary teams in the range of 6 to 20 members.
  • Product and project management. I can build and maintain client relationships and product backlogs with specific expertise in technical products such as tools and platforms. I have a decade of experience in working with agile and traditional project methodologies.
  • User interface design. With an extensive background in building customer-facing applications, I can design and prototype interfaces for web, mobile, and more.
