About Astrid

My career thus far has been one long manifestation of Destination Addiction. I say that because what motivates me in any role is my fervent need to take something apart, analyze it thoroughly, and put it back together in such a way that will make it work better and faster.

I have over eight years of experience in agile project management and I have had a fulfilling career thus far because I have chosen to work within companies that present me with frequent opportunities to drive optimization, expansion, and growth, whether at a team level, department level or organizational level. I have recently leveraged this knowledge and experience to spearhead a NYC-based, theatrical concert production company called Fire on the Moon. (www.fireonthemoon.co)
