I’m an experienced software engineer turned Developer Educator. I discovered my love for helping people develop while in previous management roles. Open source software has always been my passion, and developer education allows me to explore both of those things together.
With a disabled child and a new baby, time at home is very valuable to me. As such, I work remotely from our home office here in the UK.
I have experience with writing content, working with multiple dynamic-typed languages, leading teams, architecting solutions, and building prototype applications.
