You’re results driven with a philosophy of practical and strategic planning to ensure healthy and sustainable production without compromising quality. A perfect blend between a veteran production artist and logistics expert, you strive at making the outsourcing experience truly world class and enjoyable for all parties involved.

  • Strategic: your foresight is 20/20, enabling you to get a jump on future trends; you quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues in any given scenario and are comfortable and adept at deciding the best course of action, proactively creating alternative solutions
  • An organizer for results: you efficiently and effectively keep projects on track with your time management, planning, and decision-making skills; inventive and resourceful, you push yourself to improve your processes, and empowering others with all that you’ve learned
  • An effective communicator: you're accustomed to delivering verbal and nonverbal messages that are clear and concise, cross-functionally. You understand the emotion behind information to improve relationships, teamwork, decision-making, problem solving, and conflict-resolution techniques.
  • Selfless: you put the needs of others before your own, and focus on the group's health bar; you understand that success of the team is a collective effort, not the work of one person
