I am a mature student with over 9 years of computer programming experience and as many years managing my own design and development business — which I continue to run. I am driven, highly organized, and rigorous in my work. My foremost ambition is to engage with inspired and meaningful research in social psychology, especially in the realm of social cognitive disorders.

Given my history in software development, I believe that I would be particularly well-suited to any research project that entails Internet application/website development or data analysis.
