Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $55

Service Description

With experience ranging from film director to construction foreman to web developer, I have worn a lot of hats over the years but have found a common thread in them all. I gravitate towards challenging projects with lots of moving pieces that need a creative approach to problem solving.

As a film director, I learned the need and eventually the appeal of working with people who might be more talented than I am at their specific roles. At the same time, there was a need to know enough on the technical side to communicate with them about the project’s goals. When I moved to software development, the technical aspects changed but the project managements skills were very similar. There was still the need to balance creative and technical personalities and skills with the logistics and budgetary concerns to complete a given project.
