I’m currently employed as a Project Manager at Vital Design, a well-respected digital marketing firm, but my career path has been anything by straightforward and I have a broad range of interests. Over the years, either directly or by referrals from trusted sources, I’ve accumulated a number of resources that have helped me grow, both personally and professionally, and I’m eager to share them.
If you have a resource you’d like to recommend for this page (I’ll give you full credit, promise!), a constructive criticism of a resource I’ve included, or you have any questions, please contact me—I’d love to hear from you!
