Summary

I am a full stack web-developer with a knack for solving complex logical problems in the backend.  One of my passions is working in and on social businesses,  that have a mandate to improve lives. My most fulfilling job experience thus far was when I spent six months working with tea farmers in western Kenya. I like to work for companies with compelling missions, in positions where I am often exposed and challenged by new languages and technologies.

Production Supervisor/Research

JusTea

JusTea is a Vancouver-based social business partnership with small-scale tea farmers in Kenya.  Having come on board early on in the formation of the company I was involved in the initial research trip in Kenya, a crowdfunding campaign back in Canada, and have since returned to Kenya twice to both receive and give training related to tea production. I lived in a rural village for six months over the course of these two trips, being responsible for researching and sourcing equipment, finding an industry expert to train our team, training and supervising employees, facilitating communication between Kenyan mgmt and Vancouver, shipping logistics and many other random tasks.
