I had an amazing opportunity to join Buffer and create an amazing application as a Traction Engineer. With some help from my colleagues we created Pablo - a social media engaging images tool.

Writeoften web 2

Write Often

There is no greater satisfaction I get than implementing my own solution. Few years ago I decided I wanted to improve my writing. After searching the web for solution I found none that I captured my attention. So, I decided I would design my own application and implement it.

Worked with a team of amazing developers and designer we created a simulator for helping students learn neuroscience concepts.

Ideal team

I love working with a team of different personalities. I love having constructive discussions. Everyone is different and brings different things to table so it is okay if they don't know something. There are lots of things I have yet to learn.
