  • Analytical: I enjoy breaking down problems, and the rush of insight into how to solve them.
  • Teamwork: Working in a team, I am comfortable with both leading and following, depending on what the situation calls for. In pushing my ideas I try to judge them by importance; minor suggestions are often not worth upsetting the team dynamics over.
  • Communication: I am able to communicate with a wide variety of people and adapting to others. I am patient and calm.
  • Drive: Once I set my sights on something, I don't easily give up and can be quite a perfectionist. I very much enjoy the satisfaction of a good result.
