Hello 👋

Unfortunately, I don't have any available slot for the next 4 weeks

    Developer turned technical engineering manager re-turned developer who values transparency and collaboration interested in working with a bright and committed team in a fun environment. I have a depth of experience in API creation and consumption, particularly OAuth and REST, front-end web development, and large data sets. Handling heavy load and scalability has long been a problem space that has piqued my interest and is the focus of the current chapter in my career. I am an empowering colleague that is as good a listener as I am a communicator.
