As a former communications consultant and activist, I have a strong background in digital initiatives, project management, social media and campaigning. From technical to creative, I advised agencies, brands, NGOs, advisers, and parliament members. Throughout my work I often focused on the societal issues that I want to combat through the accessibility and omnipresence of technology.
My journey has led me to software development because I believe in technology as a tool for collaboration, self-expression and social justice.
As a software developer, my unique experience means that I am adept at solving problems, whether human or technical.
I am dedicated to working collaboratively and to finding the best, most efficient ways to achieve project goals.
