What I do

Imagine, develop, & execute.

Web Dev & Design

While I am a proud engineer at heart, I have a strong enthusiasm for drawing up visually memorable and elegant user experiences on the web. Front end development is my passion and I am particularly avid about pure css interactions and animations. Check out my work on Codepen or Dribbble.

Backend Development

Under the hood of any great front end interface are thoroughly built backend functionalities. Database schemas, API development and routing, middeware, and unit tests are the backbone of a successful website or application. As a strong Python advocate Flask is my go-to framework for creating web APIs.

App Development

Mobile & web applications are integral parts of our daily lives. Creating iOS/Android and web applications is another passion of mine. Check out my latest web-app solo project Financhle, "The Wordle of Finance".

Stay Curious

At the end of the day, creating and developing software is more than just a hobby for me. I have an insatiable desire to develop quality code that promotes usability and efficiency while being visually exciting. Make sure to check back in soon for updated projects of mine!
