About Me

I'm a former musician currently working at Amazon as a Software Engineer, bringing creative solutions to modern technological challenges.

I'm interested in all things tech and have worked on projects from embedded systems, to big data & machine learning, all the way to standard web & mobile development. I'm also a part time technical writer at ETHLend, and have edited a number of whitepapers for ICOs. I pride myself on my ability to pick up new tech quickly, so if you've got a project that doesn't involve one of these skills, don't hesitate to get in touch!
