Not every 6 year old gets to learn Turbo Pascal 3. Ever since I was a child I have had a fondness for technology; however the mobile revolution seems to have had the greatest impact on my life.

After I achieved my Masters in Computer Science Cum Laude, I forged a career in Android and iOS development, and try to learn more about different platforms, their strengths, weakness and best uses whenever I get the opportunity. I am always trying to make sure that my skills remain sharp and up to date.

I also have a keen passion for wearables and IoT - I’m always developing.
