I have a diverse career as a Software Engineer and Architect, showcasing my expertise across various industries including positions at eBay Classifieds Group, Wikimedia Foundation Deutschland, and Klarna. Notable achievements include delivering JavaScript projects from end-to-end, leading teams, developing proof-of-concepts to rebuilding legacy applications from the ground up using the latest technologies, and creating innovative tools to support engineering practices. Additionally, I've made impactful open-source contributions, such as enhancing Mozilla Firefox DevTools and implementing accessibility-specific JSX rules for the Rome Toolchain. My educational background in Fine Arts, Photography, and Computing Studies from RMIT University enhances my ability to bring unique and creative solutions to technical challenges.
