    Strong Ruby on Rails Developer in Kentucky

    United States - Last active: 09/12/2013 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

    There are three things you need to know about me. 1) I want the product of my labor to be the best in its class. 2) I am never satisfied and must continually improve. 3) I am a people person and I know that communication, cooperation, and trust are the keys to success. These are the qualities that I bring to the table and they have always been a great asset for information gathering, training, and team building. These traits allow me to swiftly and efficiently identify the needs of an organization, develop a solution that fits, and lead my team through the completion of that vision. I make IT happen.
