I've had the pleasure of working with some great well known brands, including challenging projects for UK Government (GOV.UK), app/web startups and blue-chip companies to deliver high quality technical solutions to tight deadlines; ensuring projects are delivered considering security, accessibility and performance in mind.

I believe in rapid prototyping, end-to-end testing, automated QA and good code hygiene. Introducing such policy is the most effective way I found to ensure projects are more sustainable, more enjoyable to work on (for software engineers teams) and more cost-effective ways to deploy and scale (e.g. Serverless, Edge functions, Docker/Kubernetes).

I enjoy working end to end from the SDLC (Software Development Lifecycle) from going from UI/UX, to developers demoing a new feature, to then deploy to live. My previous roles include unique opportunities to architect solutions for all types of traffic from 200 users concurrent to 20 million calls a day.
