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.
Recently, I've dipped my toes into Kubernetes and the Cloud Native Ecosystem. In December 2021, I cleared the KCNA certificate.

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.

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.
