About Me

With over 5 years of R&D experience and a wide-ranging skillset, I am able to rapidly solve challenging problems.



I'm a Mechanical Engineer experienced in research & development, who has a passion for design and innovation. Alongside my career in engineering, I offer freelance website design services and have taken up iOS app development. I take pride in my ability to adapt and leverage my unique perspective gained from my various pursuits. Paired with a keen eye for detail I can contribute innovative ideas in any undertaking.

In addition to my professional pursuits, I am a lifelong athlete who loves the outdoors. I enjoy hiking, camping, and a variety of sports including soccer, golf, and team handball. More recently, I've taken up competing in Spartan races - this has provided me with new challenges and competition.

I'm excited to share my experiences with you, and explore new opportunities for collaboration and growth. Whether you're interested in engineering, app development, website design, or just want to chat about sports and the great outdoors, feel free to reach out.

Website Design

My Web Design Process

Many website designers are design first. In an increasingly digital world, I believe that great design comes second to effective content. Therefore, I practise a content-first approach. What does this mean? It means that website content is derived specifically with the customer in mind. By customer I mean, your customer.

I will work with you to create website content that enhances your customer's experience and brings value to your business. All of this is then nicely presented in a beautiful website design that conveys your brand. Contact me to learn more!

App Development

My App Development Journey

From the day I was introduced to programming, I was hooked. The ability to think and create something useful has always been fascinating to me. My innate desire to create and engineer led me to an interest in mobile app development. My first app, Divitiae, is a iOS application designed to help users create a budget and manage their finances. Though this journey, I have gained many skills including:

Programming in Swift
UI & UX Design
figma & Sketch
Interfacing with Databases and API's
