About Craig

I made a living in sales during the last five years with top firms like NASDAQ, helping clients in public relations tech and communications software. I found my passion is on the product and technical side. With customer-facing experience in B2B SaaS sales, I understand the importance of meeting and managing client/user expectations.

I've been taking coding classes over the last year at The Flatiron School (Front-end web development), Codecademy Labs (Front-End web development), Thinkful (Essentials of Modern Web Design) and Udacity (Front-end Web Development NanoDegree).

These courses led me to join the Startup Institute Product/ Web Design career accelerator full time. I honed my skills in Product Management and Front End Engineering, utilizing HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, jQuery, Bootstrap and the Adobe creative suite to create an MVP within 6 weeks. This MVP was called Krossover Konnect and created a gamified platform for freelancers to stay motivated and work more efficiently.

I'm excited to use my Biz Dev background, technical skills, experience understanding users, and leadership abilities to join an entrepreneurial team looking to grow their product.
