About Me

I believe that good software can help people provide value in society. I don't believe software in itself has an intrinsic value, other than as a tool to be used by people. That's why I love creating well designed user interfaces for real people and creating tools for developers to create better software.

Looking for something fun to do whilst waiting for my mom, a primary school teacher, to finish grading her students’ homework, led me to start programming at age 11. At age 16, I co-founded my first startup Scholica, which primarily focussed on created learning apps for K-12 education.

After high school, I moved to London to co-found NearSt, a company helping thousands of local stores be found online across the world.

I currently spend my time there building modern local commerce tools as Head of Engineering, in addition to my work with Street Art Cities and Ministry of Urban Culture, as well as writing about tech on my website.

I'm available for consultancy and speaking engagements for topics like serverless architecture design, product strategy, developing for open source, and more.
