My Background

I am currently working as a tech lead, focusing on leading mobile app and web development and providing technical support and assistance to engineers, product and engineering managers throughout the systems development life cycle.

As a software engineer, I strive to write top notch and well working high availability software. I have a wide background in the software development process, covering design, coding, debugging, testing and maintenance.

When not coding, I can probably be found spending time outdoors, hiking, snowboarding, playing basketball or getting ready for a road trip adventure.
