“Passionate about technology and how amazingly it can be utilized for the development and improvement of a community, I committed myself to be part of projects that do just that. This passion drives me to work every day so that I can see my passion unfold. I joined this team as soon as I found out it was a place where great people, with big ideas, a lot of passion, and loads of positive energy are gathered to make outstanding things happen.
