JavaScript Consultant and Trainer

Personal Profile

I love to learn. Most of the time I'm either creating some prototype, improving my workflow, fixing things that aren't broken or playing my guitar.

I love building things while managing complexity and keeping things simple. I also very much enjoy teaching others how to do the same thing.

I love to use functional approaches, where JavaScript is my superpower <3
