SUMMARY

My passion is to be part of the digital future and use my creativity to build tools that make a difference. Learning to code has been the most satisfying experience of my career thus far and I look forward to a future of lifelong learning . I am also very excited about blockchain technology and would like to explore the possibility of working in that discipline as well.

I also have an accounting and entrepreneurial background spanning over 10 years through which I posses a unique skill set in working as an employee and also as a business ow |ner.
