My job is to make things people have never seen before. To make someone stop in their tracks. Even if for only a moment. But that moment leaves an imprint on the person’s mind. I’m a man of few words, I like to let my work do the talking, since that’s how consumers will initially view it. My vast software knowledge allows me to realize my vision closer to it finalized state. Removing the need to outsource various parts of a project.
