NW Naito Parkway i| | Attention Hiring Manager, Today I was browsing through craigslist and was excited to see that you are currently looking for a Strategic Team Leader.. I believe you will find my experience to be a good fit for both the position and your team in general. I am currently working for Downstream in Portland, OR. At Downstream I am managing projects the focus on large scale touch screen interactives. I manage both the design, programming and physical build. However, after a few months at Downstream I have realized it it not the right fit for me. I have spent the majority of my career working as a project manager for interactive projects. I have managed pall types of projects including Website Designs, Website Build, CMS implementations, Mobile Sites, Mobile Applications, Facebook Pages, Facebook Applications, Social Media Campaigns, eCommerce Build, email marketing campaigns, SEO and SEM projects. I have worked with many different CMS&;s including Sitecore, Wordpress, Drupal, Moveable Type, Joomla, Magento and MagentoGo. I am use to working on anywhere from to projects at once with budgets from k to over million. I also love the building client relationships. Managing these relationships, mitigating risks and developing great interactive projects is my passion. I would say my greatest strengths are my attention to detail, my desire to succeed and the curious nature with which I approach life I am always looking to figure out both how and why things work. Over the past couple of years I have also developed exceptional time management while managing several competing and conflicting priorities. I believe effective communication is important to manage your team and the expectations of your clients. Outside work I have a passion for golf, tennis and healthy living. I also love the people in my life and believe in a healthy work/life balance so I can spend quality time with my friends and family. I would enjoy the opportunity to interview for any position.
