About

Michael anderson

I am a driven individual with strong abilities in learning, teaching, and leading. I enjoy solving problems quickly and efficiently with over 10 years programming and application development experience.

I have a strong customer service background and am proficient in working with clients, end users, and the alignment of projects with business goals. I am consistently tasked with translating and explaining complex subject matter to non-technical people, and I take price in my technical writing style.
