ASPIRING: WEB DEVELOPER | CURRENT: HOMEBREWER & TRIATHLETE | PREVIOUS: PRODUCT OWNER

Amazing professional experience, all on the opposite side of the table. 9 years in various roles at Target HQ, the last 3 as a product owner for the merchandise presentation and global compliance teams. Now a graduate of DBC, I’m looking to join the engineers and developers I worked so closely with in my previous life to help them design and build the solutions for all the problems I used to bring them.
