About me

I can help companies build maintainable web applications and performant websites, that convert visitors into customers, in a transparent and clearly communicated way. I have experience working solo and in international teams, from B2C finance to enterprise software, on greenfield and legacy projects. I'm based in Bangkok and specialize in fullstack web application development.

As a product-minded developer I can act as a partner for product management or founders to explore technical feasibility and improve team efficiency to get products in front of real users faster on solid foundations.

At the moment I'm working remotely for Lifull Connect on some of the largest South East Asian real estate portals across a variety of tech stacks. Besides tech I'm really into travelling, with and without my laptop, often by motorcycle.
