Personal Statement  
   
 

I’m an extremely charismatic and fun person to be around. Upbeat, fun, enthusiastic, always in a good mood, yet extremely patient, yup that's me. Creativity is never in short supply.

I thrive in team environments and love contributing to the greater project at hand. Give me any task; it will be done well and on time. Hard work is where it's at with me.

I learn extremely quickly, but recognize mastery takes time.

Software will never replace experience.

My childhood drawings could fill a semi. I’ve never gotten over my fascination for my Dad’s video camera and probably never will.

More than anything, I love what I do.
