Summary

A reformed filmmaker with a passion for all things data, I'm especially fascinated by the impact Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing are having on how we interact with each other and the world around us. 

I'm a full stack developer with a penchant for backend functionality. I'm meticulous when it comes to my code, and pride myself in optimizing efficiency and implementing sound logic.

I have over two years experience working in the tech industry as a QA Tester and Business Analyst, and have a strong familiarity with Agile Project Management and the Software Development Life Cycle. I thrive in high-pressure, challenging environments and strive to push the boundaries of what is possible in everything I do.
