Overview

As a seasoned technical project manager, I have led projects from conception of an idea, to design, to software development and quality assurance. Additionally, I engage with clients first hand to train their teams on content management systems and look after their technical needs.

My previous experience includes media and publishing websites, entertainment events ticketing platforms, international money transfer software, as well as Salesforce and survey API integration work. Additionally, I continuously apply my research and workforce development background to help companies evaluate and improve their business performance and productivity while keeping their employees’ suggestions and values close to heart.

As a project manager, I have the infamous reputation for being someone who is very good at putting out fires. My attention to detail and excellent time management skills makes me a very effective scrum master. Moreover, my fluency in Urdu puts me at an advantage if some of my team members are in South Asia.

I am an eternal learner and am constantly updating myself on new software and technology. For instance, I attended a boot camp to learn front and back end development on rails to get my experience and knowledge up to speed. My continuous desire to learn and improve my abilities gives me an edge because I solve problems at work and am not afraid of occasional chaos.
