Web developer and writer with an unconventional path to the tech industry; tireless creator and entrepreneur.

I currently work as a developer relations engineer at MUI.

Previously I was the marketing manager at Hashnode, leading our events, workshops, and other community initiatives.

I've worked with agencies as a front-end developer and - JavaScript is my programming language of choice, but I'm also comfortable in WordPress Land. My personal tastes lean toward Next.js and Eleventy.

I've worked with startups as a developer advocate, copywriter, and technical writer - I believe that empathy-driven documentation is the best marketing tool that a young tech company can invest in. I especially love creating beginner-friendly guides and tutorials.

I often ride solo as a blogger, author, and content creator - I've been freelancing as a writer and editor since 2012; in 2017 I launched The Good Life Revival blog and podcast; today I write about web development and the tech industry for various outlets.
