Pronouns: He/him

Although I always had a passion for technology, I originally pursued a love for languages by teaching English in China, Spain, and online. I then shifted my focus to my passion for programming and started my journey into web development. I found myself immersed in HTML, CSS, JS, and React for hours at at time, attracted by its many possibilities. That’s where I found my calling! I have worked as a developer, but more importantly I have experience teaching programming languages as well.

My years of experience as a teacher have taught me a whole lot of patience, great teamwork, collaboration skills, problem-solving skills, and exceptional planning and organizational skills which allow me to manage multiple responsibilities, and not crack under pressure. Together with everything I’ve learned studying web development, and working as a developer and coding mentor, I’m a well-rounded team member that’s excited to help more people develop the skills to access better paying opportunities.
