tl;dr

Wrapping up two and a half years as software engineer at Luno, working mostly in Go (which, IMHO, is a pretty great language). Looking for new opportunities as a Backend engineer, preferably in London, ideally in Go, but I'm not fussy about languages.

Run the Go Cape Town Meetup, new members always welcome, speakers even more so, send me an email if you want to speak.

Did some Hackathons: won Luno's crypto hackathon solo, and participated as an individual in #hackbehaviour and with a team for an insurance hackathon.

Mantain a small static site for She is Strong, helping however I can.

Have an Honours degree from the University of Cape Town in Computer Science and Bachelors in Computer Science and Computer Games Development.

Completed internships at Facebook (twice), Amazon and BrandsEye.

Used to be chairperson of the UCT Dev Soc, a tutor for the Computer Science Department and did some freelance work for the Percy Fitzpatrick Institute.
