My values & beliefs

  1. Empowerment – I believe the best results come from trusting people, equipping them with good information, and encouraging them to be creative.
  2. Empathy – The only way to build sustainable software is to empathize with your customers and your colleagues. Ask questions and be open to other points of view.
  3. Curiosity – Being open and interested to learn continuously is important, both for individuals and for organizations at large.
  4. Humility – I’m a strong believer in servant leadership. My job is not to be the superstar but to help other people learn, understand the “why”, and lift them up when they succeed.

About me

At my core, I’m a self-taught developer who started coding at 10 years old. From there I supplemented my knowledge by studying Computer Science, and have been working in software engineering for nearly a decade – both as an individual contributor and as a manager. My current challenge is my work at SumUp, an international FinTech company that I’ve been with on its journey from 80 to more than 1,500 employees as its Frontend Lead.
