With over 20 years of public sector IT service, I’ve broadened my horizons into web design and development. I’m a U.S. Army veteran, hold a SECRET clearance, and have a Bachelor’s Degree in Management, Computer Information Systems. I am fluent in English and Spanish, a focused team player, a lifetime learner, and am excited to take on new challenges that combine my creativity and business sense.
