3 fun facts about me:

When I was 11 years old, I was suspended for hacking into my school network. Decades later I would use the same URL parameter techniques to build business functionality that led to significant operational efficiency.

When I was early in my Sales career, we needed new functionality for my team however a year after the request was put in it was still not prioritized. That weekend, I downloaded the source code and updated what we needed and sent it to tech team to review so it could be implemented quickly.
