One thought on “Resume”

  1. Hi Kalin-
    I just ran across your portfolio and wanted to touch base regarding availability. Are you currently busy or would be interested in hearing about new opportunities? I staff a lot of long term contract roles at Microsoft and have a couple that could be a good fit.

    Let me know if you are potentially interested and I can send over details.

    Thanks!
