I've built PC hardware systems from the motherboard up, custom configured their Operating Systems, and then wrote bespoke internal tools to work on top. I've managed small teams in every aspect of technology, collaborated on creative vision with designers, and helped turn those visions into reality from every angle. I have credits in 12 console games from 12 years in the gaming industry, developed 4 first corporate web sites from nothing, helped establish hiring standards and recruiting practices at 2 companies, and served as the product owner of a multi-million dollar per month profit earning web service. I thrive on automating myself out of jobs that I don't want, and properly delegating the jobs I do want. I've managed direct advertiser partnerships with the smallest and biggest names in the online advertising industry, including Google AdSense and Yahoo/Bing AdCenter. I've held conference calls with industry titans on a weekly basis. I started two nonprofit social enterprises, one hyperlocal and one global.
