Summary

I am an aggressive cyclist with an obsession for coffee. Being passionate about visual and aural culture; I have naturally gravitated to pursuits of music, and photography. I have always been fascinated by the technology that drives innovation and creativity behind artistic endeavours. I am looking to join a highly aligned team, where I  can contribute with my accumulated skills and experience and learn from others. My fascination with the modern user experience and the interfaces that beguile and charm us,  coupled with my sensitivity to details, make me naturally suited for front-end endeavours.

Software Engineer

Front end web developer

Main Project: Client Web App 2.0

The client web app is the external facing web app that clients would use to interact with their financials and their bookkeeping team. This included financial reports, with interactive charts, the ability to navigate statements and upload documents, an IM style message feed, as well as the ability to curate a list of their financial institutions to pull data from. All wrapped is a visually beautiful and minimal interface.

  • Worked closely with the product team to re-architect the current app
  • Took a monolith app written in Backbone and Scala and converted it into microsystems written in Angular and Node
  • Emphasis on writing reusable and tested components
  • Constant research and discussion to make sure the “right” thing is built.
