Full Stack Engineer & Web Developer

Headshot_Bartel.jpg

I am currently transitioning from a design education career into web, software, and app development. As an artist, designer, and educator, I learned to be visually literate, agile, intuitive, nimble, and receptive to media and the ways in which people respond to that media. That is what it means to be a good designer and creative contributor regardless of the product being created and built.

 

In addition to my hard coding skills, which are growing daily, this is the knowledge base and understanding I will bring to the table as a developer on your team.

 

I see the big picture, yet I can take deep dives into granular tasks without losing focus of my team’s end-goals. I push ideas, I ask question, I solicit advice, I’m social and most importantly, I understand the baseline structure of project development: COMMUNICATION, RESEARCH, DOCUMENTION & IMPLIMENTATION. I look forward to seeing how my unique blend of knowledge and skills can add value to your development team.
