About

You can hire me to do great things (I’m awesome) or small things (I pay attention to detail) or exciting things (I’m an outside-of-the-box thinker, mainly because I was never assimilated by the Borg) or all at the same time. I also make great coffee! Send me an e-mail or an owl if you want to talk more.
