In my later college years, I worked as a freelance 3D modeler for game companies and start-ups. Working with these companies to plan their road-map for publishing helped me gain an eye for what’s needed for a business to be successful and for a project to be completed. After years of this, I then made the decision to move on to programming as a career focus because I enjoy the challenges involved with solving complex business problems. Programming at its core is problem solving, it’s like a puzzle that inspires me to keep chipping away at overcoming the obstacles that stand in the way.
I joined the Extensitech team to leverage my PHP knowledge and skill set to help bring web based solutions and extensions to their already well-established business management software, as well as to assist in extending FileMaker’s reach to clients. I feel like I’m a great fit to the team at Extensitech due to their collaborative environment and my own strategies of sharing ideas. The team can run through ideas in a matter of minutes while focusing on what can be done to accomplish tasks realistically, and they possess the follow through needed to meet deadlines. As a programmer, I love the efficiency that this brings to the table in a professional programming environment.
