I specialize mostly in frontend development, but I am well versed in international logistics, marketing, and business. I did my B.S. in material science at university and my honors dissertation was on research I did with space grade actuators via shape memory alloys, but I am not currently involved in that field anymore.
I am obsessed with software because it makes my life so much easier. As a result, I spend a lot of time A/B testing new software, writing reviews, and writing my own plugins.
I currently do frontend ecommerce development for a company that sells industrial equipment.
