About me

Creating something new from scratch is something I have always been passionate about. Prior to software development, my occupation was that of the head baker at a renowned bakery. Being able to create pastries using raw ingredients was the perfect introduction into software development; seeing what is needed, being able to execute and present in such a way that leaves my code just as delectable as the pastries I made.
