I’m a professional software engineer and engineering manager, working in Melbourne, Australia. I was born in South Africa, and spent 5 years working in California before moving to Melbourne.
I am a full-stack engineer, specializing in software and firmware, but also with some awareness of electronics and hardware. I am well suited to small companies and startups, where everyone is often required to wear many hats — I have experience in the development of firmware, web, user interfaces, graphic design, databases, applications, and server and cloud software, and limited experience in electronics, PCB layout and mechanical modeling. In the past few years, I have also taken on a management role at my current employment, where my breadth of experience helps me to a lead a diverse engineering team to develop a suite of IoT cold-chain-monitoring solutions.

Criticism is sometimes the best way to refine an idea. It’s great if you agree with me, but even better if you can point out flaws that didn’t occur to me. If I disagree, it will just be more motivation to get it done, so I can prove you wrong ;-) ↩
