Patrick Rovito

Who is this guy?

Where do I start? I've learned about teamwork from co-producing (and writing, directing and acting in) a sketch comedy show for IGTV. I’ve learned about paying attention to the details while being a web developer and a product manager on everything from webstores to custom web apps. I’ve learned about listening to people’s issues and finding creative solutions from being a development manager, Mac IT specialist and graphic designer.
