About me

Profile Image

7+ years of software development experience.

Currently diving deeper into reactive programming using Spring Webflux with RSocket for my next personal project

I may not be an expert at your particular technology stack - but that's OK. What's important is my ability to break down big problems into smaller ones and the dedication to take ownership of a problem and find a solution. If this is something you also believe in as a core value within your company, feel free to reach out.
