I’m an experienced technology professional who greatly enjoys working with new front-end technology, right at the point where it is mature enough to break through to the general public. When best practices are not set in stone yet and pioneering is still part of every day, that’s when I am in my element.
Since 2008, I’ve been working on creating great mobile apps (iOS, Android, Windows and even BlackBerry back in the day) and TV apps (Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, PlayStation, Samsung, LG, Sony, Google Cast and many others), just when those were changing how regular people live and work with technology. Currently, I’m very excited about the potential of virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality to open up a world of new possibilities.

Having worked mostly in small companies, I’ve had many roles and covered many disciplines over the years, often combining several at the same time. My experience ranges from the technical (coding in various programming languages, research and prototyping, APIs, product development, software development practices) to the more commercial (technical sales engineering, proposal and RFP scoping and writing) and operational (technical project management, recruitment, HR) up to the strategic (technology strategy and innovation, investors and due diligence).
Whatever particular role I have at any specific point in time, my interest in technology always remains my core driver. In my experience there is simply no substitute for actually being able to create something which works well and which people enjoy using.
