I write code and it is absolutely gorgeous!

I am a full stack developer, passionate about clean and test-driven code. I have skills in TypeScript, Node.js, Angular, React, and AWS. I can implement UI designs, create REST APIs and develop CI/CD pipelines.

Software Engineer Consultant at Devoteam

- Present

During my time at Devoteam I have worked on the OpenDORA internal project. I developed features for the REST API in Go, created UI components in React/TypeScript and set up CICD pipelines in GitHub actions. Code was written with tests in mind and Docker images and Kubernetes Helm charts were created for easier deployment.

Full-stack Engineer at WoodWing


Part of a high velocity, self managed team, I was responsible for developing features and upgrading legacy code in an enterprise content-creation software suite. This included building UI components and views in Angular 15, upgrading from AngularJS, creating APIs using AWS Lambda and API Gateway. During my role I guided other engineers to write declarative and reactive code with RxJS and also lead knowledge sharing sessions on AWS IAM security.

I played a key role in expanding the team to include 3D artists and content creation, as well as choosing a technical direction and approach for the visualization of 3D assets. I was responsible for creating the web interface with an interactive 3D viewer. This was developed using React and Styled-components with automated testing in Jest, Cypress and AWS CodeBuild.
