My name is sylvia, and like making things better.
If you’ve ever wondered why something is made or designed the way it is, we have something in common. If you do this compulsively, all the time, follow up with three more whys and finally, “Is there a better way?” — or, alternatively (and more boringly) “Is this really the optimal way, given the circumstances?” — then we may be soulmates.
You see, I’m a detail-minded, creative, analytical thinker and problem-solver. When I encounter new things, sub-optimal things, problematic things, or confusing things, I consider them deeply. I like to get to the bottom of those things, and, if possible, I like to help make them better. Of course, when I encounter awesome, impressive things, I consider them deeply, too. And then, too, I ponder whether there’s any way that they could conceivably be any more awesome and impressive. Chocolate sauce on my triple-layer chocolate cake? Yes, please!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have any delusions that I can find revolutionary solutions to all of the world’s problems, nor that everything can be fixed with chocolate sauce (though it often does help).
I do, however, believe in effecting positive change, in driving growth, in expecting excellence, and in pursuing perfection, whatever that may be.
That’s me, in a nutshell. To get an idea of how this approach has served me in various roles I’ve played, read on below. If you are looking for someone that can help polish a product, refine an idea, drive progress, delight clients, or deliver more than expected, please get in touch!
