About Me

I'm a former developer who fell in love with software test life cycle, quality assurance and data analysis.

I am a skilled IT professional with solid experience in banking, telecom and e-commerce industries. Having worked for major companies since 2004, I have developed technical, academic, strategic and business-oriented skills. I am experienced with formal software development processes from Unisys, but became an agilist in 2012. I'm currently working at Avenue Code as a QA Engineer, applying agile practices to help build a better world through efficient software tests.

ISTQB CTFL and Scrum.org PSM 1 certified, also a passionate homebrewer.
