System Implementation Organizational Planning Financial Analysis Project Management

About Me

My working background was heavily focused on Project Management. I have led integration projects, financial/sales analysis projects, and investment planning projects. As well I have worked as a General Manager, managing around 60 employees and day-to-day operations at a manufacturing company. I've always been interested in computers and consider myself well-versed in their operations. I am a capable programmer and nearly majored in computer science. However my degree is in Business Administration and I focused my study in Financial Analysis and Planning. I am hoping to find a career opportunity, keeping me in manufacturing or manufacturing adjacent areas. I get great joy out of seeing the completion of projects and seeing the value that they bring to an organization.
