So, apparently people like to know that you aren't lying. Thus, below is my formal resume. 

Informally, I am very good at what I do—not because I'm some dude that likes to brag about himself, but because I care about what I do. I've had the good fortune of working with a lot of exceptionally talented people. I've come to really appreciate what makes great people great, and I strive to constantly grow and change.

My dad once told me, "If someone is paying you to do something, you better do a great job." And dads are always right—I know because I am one.
