Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I have a strong attention to detail and like to soak up as much information about a topic as I can. I can easily step back from a situation to get other perspective on an idea/project so that I can approach difficulties with a critical eye. All of this allows me to look at the typical from different angles and bring my own creative spin to it.
