I’m a proud Gitpodder! 🍊 I currently lead community engagement and development, part of DCS (Developer & Community Success) team! Curious about how I got here? You can read more about why I joined Gitpod on my blog.
Shifting my focus on to tooling and developer experience, I also author DevX Digest - the newsletter about developer experience.
Gitpod is an open source platform for automated and ready-to-code development environments, enabling developers to describe their dev environment as code and start instant and fresh development environments for each new task directly from a browser. Join our community!
I began learning to code for fun when I was 8 years old. I formed a hobby of building websites which carries on to this day - continuing to bring my ideas to life by playing around with pixels on the internet.

Community is everything. I've been involved in several different communities over the years, where my goal as a leader or contributor is to cultivate a safe space for others to connect and learn from each other.

Tech community blog posts
13 years ago, I started writing on the web .
My blog has evolved over time, I now write about reflections of my experiences for both my self development journey as well as daily adventures in life.
Examples of the topics I cover include monthly reflections , equality in STEM , well-being , and building your online presence. I regularly collaborate with different brands, people and companies. A full list of topics can be found here.
I also post videos on YouTube , create podcasts , and have worked with different people on communicating messages across to my global auidence. For example, I built Inspiring Figures to share inspirational figures' stories from around the world.
