About

I've been diving headfirst into the tech industry for over 10 years, and while my keyboard has thankfully stayed clean, my hands have gotten quite dirty learning, exploring, and engineering cool stuff. But professionally, a dynamic Full-Stack Software & Creative Engineer boasting over 7 years of comprehensive hands-on experience in architecting, developing, and deploying enterprise-level applications across various platforms and industries. I've spearheaded solution design initiatives, significantly contributing to revenue growth, driving user engagement, and optimizing software performance. My expertise encompasses crafting state-of-the-art interactive UIs, integrating advanced Machine Learning and AI algorithms, enhancing user experiences, and streamlining delivery times. I've adeptly managed cross-functional teams in both on-site and remote environments, emphasizing CI/CD processes and rigorous testing protocols to consistently exceed business objectives. Proficient in a broad tech stack including but not limited to my skills below, my versatility is further underscored by a background ranging from creating enterprise-level applications to drafting revenue-generating proposals, complemented by an unexpected stint in bartending, highlighting my exceptional interpersonal and communication skills.
