About me

To me, what makes for a life full of meaning, is a deeper purpose. What better way to connect with the world and impact the greatest amount of lives possible than software engineering? The tools to create websites and connect with those we’ve lost touch with are right at our fingertips; A world that once seemed so vast suddenly looks smaller.

My desire to experience the world and connect with different cultures consumes me. It first led me down the path of hotel management and travel/tourism, but after some reflection into what really fueled me, I found it was throwing myself in the deep end and becoming adaptable to unanticipated situations.

Software engineering plays to my strengths, as I get to come face-to-face with challenging problems on a daily basis. With extensive startup experience, you can rely on me to work effectively in high pressure situations. In fact, I have a strong desire to beat former “best-yets” and exceed company metrics so that I can create the best possible product for our users. Let’s chat to discuss how my qualifications will be beneficial to your organization's success.
