More About Me?

I am a Developer Experience Engineer and technical writer. I enjoy working on projects that help other software engineers. I'm usually the guy that make it possible for other developers to get things done faster. At Netlify, I work alongside my team to ensure that developers have access to world-class resources (blog posts, tutorial, video course, open-source repos, snippets etc) that helps improve how developers experience our products and services.

Outside work, I'm a fun loving person. I like to dance (even though I suck at it 😞). I also like to travel, meet new people, learn new cultures and try out new meals 😃.

My Crafts

I love simplicity so I try to keep things simple in all that I do. I'm also very particular about best practices and would always sacrifice time and effort to acheive great developer and user experiences in all my works.
