I’m a generalist. I believe it’s easier to solve problems if you know how and where to look for solutions and are willing to learn the details where and when you need them. I am bothered by impeded flows and love to put things together.
Making things (and trying to make things better) is just what I naturally do. There are few things that I own that I haven’t tried to modify or customize to better suit their use. I take pride in being able to fix things that are broken and in developing the skills to maintain the things that I rely on.
Making things easy for other people is also something I love to do. When I develop websites, I am just as concerned with the functionality of the back end interface as I am with the front end display of content. If a site is difficult to admin it will probably not be used, and what’s the point of that? Additionally, I enjoy facilitating the translation of a prototype into a functioning application through consultation on design and user interaction.
I have spent most of my career working as a lone programmer in a team of designers or fabricators. I have learned an incredible amount in these situations, but I would love to work with a team of other creative developers and programmers. I see collaboration as the ideal path for growth as a programmer and as an opportunity to help develop a team capable of realizing larger and more rewarding projects.
