I would prefer my about page to be sincere, but to the point.
What I'd like you to know about me:
For my career, I am two things: A small business management professional and a private client web software developer.
I love terrible puns and Disney World.
While I do like being acknowledged and appreciated, I prefer to be behind-the-scenes. I would rather be helping to build and strengthen a team than be in front getting credit. You can do so much more when you're surrounded by people that believe in you and that you also believe in.
I have learned that providing support and guidance to someone who just wants to be better at something is extremely gratifying. I try to embody this approach when building my teams and working with peers. I have learned that some people just need someone to say "I believe in you." I do this often, and with complete sincerity. I want everyone to reach their potential.
I know the value of treating people well. No one is successful on their own. And because people skills weren't high on my list earlier in life, i've spent much of my adult life researching and studying how to work with people, learning to be more patient and compassionate. I love learning about and understanding the psychology of leadership, conflict resolution, and motivation. I think I will always be working on this.
If you have a challenging project and an unabashedly optimistic attitude that it can happen, I'd like to work with you on that project
I work very, very hard. The journey is more important to me than the destination because that's where I get to learn and grow the most.
I deeply enjoy learning and understanding materials, processes and systemic concepts. This is why most of my hobbies involve building businesses, creating art and working with wood.
I'm a very open, honest and positive person. I want to be and am working towards being the kind of person that handles challenges and works through conflicts with strength and grace.
Beyond that, there's nothing else I feel compelled to tell you unless you would like to know
