Hi, my name is Edward.

I'm a content creator based in Los Angeles,
working on development, content strategy and more.

I have more than 10 years of experience working in digital media, as a content strategist, social media manager and more. I've added user experience design and web and mobile development to my skill set as I continue to keep up with digital trends. You can find out more about my career path on LinkedIn.

I aim to serve those who are curious about the greater world, faraway lands and different cultures. I believe it's important to demonstrate what it's like to seek out the unfamiliar and to inspire others to step outside their comfort zone and experience cultures different from their own.

When not exploring the world, I can usually be found being a dad, watching and playing hockey (yes, even in Southern California), playing the guitar and creating Simpsons memes.



Skills

These are the technologies I work with.

I believe not just in learning new things but sharing them with those around me. I will always strive not just to keep myself improving, but to help others improve along with me so that any team I join can continually grow as one.

I'm a focused and organized project manager with experience in Agile methodologies and certification as a Professional Scrum Master.

I'm very interested in staying on top of the latest technology trends and am open to enhancing my development and design skills in my spare time.
