We brought Myles on to help with the execution of the '23 LG webOS Hackathon. He was highly instrumental in its success, ultimately creating a memorable experience with our brand amongst participants and driving innovative ideas into the webOS ecosystem. The hackathon wouldn't have been as successful without his efforts wrangling and keep things moving forward. Myles is professional, creative, and kind and I look forward to working with him again!
