Life is a journey consisting of our destination, where we have been, and the details we've noticed along the way.
My prior professional experience includes project management, recruitment, and client relations. I hold supervisory experience and work well in a team environment. Over the course of my career, I have worked in retail, computer & printer part sales, customer service, healthcare, nonprofit, early childhood education, bookselling, and the mortgage industries. In addition, I am dependable, empathetic, a problem solver, open to feedback, and take iniative. I also have a good sense of humor.
1. I am not ticklish.
2. I studied fiction writing with Orson Scott Card, author of Ender's Game, winner of the 1985 Nebula Award and 1986 Hugo Award for best novel.
3. I am passionate about new wave music of the 80s, everything from A Flock of Seagulls to Yazoo.
4. As a child, I became airborne on my bicycle and landed in the branches of a tree. I can also attest your life really does flash before your eyes when you think you're going to die.
5. I received a screen test for the character of Aaron in the motion picture, Primal Fear. Since Edward Norton received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for the role, you probably guessed I didn't get the part. Oh, well ... it could have been beautiful!

Using AngularJS, I coded an app that lets users add images of retro movie posters to an online database. Users also have the ability to make a red heart appear when they click on an image to "like" it. A counter displays the number of likes for each image.
