I work at Derivco where I am a QA Developer and Scrum Master. At Derivco we work in agile teams, using Scrum and Kanban to deliver high quality software products.

I have a passion for the web and I love working with the technologies that drives it.

I'm looking forward to a universally connected future and I hope to be a part of making that future happen, not only for the privileged but for everyone.

I believe that the industry of IT needs to diversify, in all aspects. We need to be more inclusive as an industry and that can't just be something that is written in your company manifesto; it needs to be the main thing driving your company culture.

I want to be a part of growing the industry of IT into areas where it is yet to evolve beyond what we in the privileged world call "90th century tech". This is probably our main challenge today and in the upcoming decades.
