§ Profile

I'm a Senior Software Developer & DevOps engineer with over 9 years of experience under my belt. I develop and create web applications and manage the environments behind them. I've spent the last 5 years submerging myself in the optics field, learning everything from lab equipment to sales and reporting.

I've spent the last couple of years growing my career and learning more about business development. Recently I've started to lead and organize a team of developers. My personal interests strongly relate to my professional interests, so I love working even when I shouldn't.
