Currently working in the energy industry, developing new reusable tools to help business with SAP features used in everyday work activities. I enjoy developing programs where production monitoring is minimal and optimizing ABAP coding adds flexibility across SAP modules. Previously worked at IBM Global Services as an SAP ABAP Workflow/Open Text Consultant.
