More About Me

What I Do

Stuff I specialize in.

Fullstack Engineering

Building digital products by leveraging not just the latest tech stacks but the RIGHT ones. Some of these include but not limited to Ruby on Rails, Flutter, WordPress, Node JS and whatever is required for a particular use cases.

Cloud Architecture/DevOps

From time to time, I enjoy working on the Cloud side of things - DevOps, setting up infrastructure and pipelines using such tools as GitHub Actions, Circle CI, Code Climate, AWS Infrastructure, Capistrano, and so on.

Product Management

I've unknowingly been doing PM while leading and working in teams for a couple of years now, until recently when I've become intentional about upskilling my Pm skill-set. I have been thorough in my pursuit of building digital products, be it a passion project, freelance gig or my full-time employment.


Some thoughts and stuff.
