Resume

Hi, I'm Patrick Springstubbe. I love web development, building new projects, and taking ownership of my work as well as taking pride in what I create. I have worked in the tech industry for over 17 years. I prefer to be the best at a few things than an amateur at everything. I see things a little differently than most people and would rather be the leader than the follower of trends (some trends need not apply). If you want a leader, rebel, thinker, and visionary then I might just be the guy for you.

Skills

None of these are 100% as they are always being updated and changing so there are always new things to learn.

Software

  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • Windows OS
  • Mac OS X
  • *nix OS Administration

I have a knack for learning new software with little to no assistance.

Projects

These are just a few things I have developed. Many required integration with un-controlled sources as well as doing things that there was no exisitng project available to model after.
