I'm a self-taught full-stack developer. I discovered a passion for programming in my childhood and have continued to develop this skill to this day. With experience in web, native and voice applications ranging from start-ups to enterprise, I'm always up for the next challenge. Besides software, my hobbies include cooking, squash, fitness, latin dance and nights on the town.
All of what I have learned is self-taught from various resources such as books, online, personal and professional experience.
Having been developing software for over years now, I've come to learn that software engineering is far from just "software". Great development lies at the intersection of technical, communication, management & people skills. And great developers utilise these skills to get the best outcome from any situation.
And, in such a diverse and rapidly evolving field, to be proficient, one must be willing to continually learn and grow throughout their career.

The website is blazingly fast, distributed via Azure CDN, extremely cheap to host using Azure Blob Storage, yet very simple to manage via Contentful CMS.View Website
