Hi, I'm Oliver 👋

With 9 years of experience working with various server and client-side languages as well as XP & agile development best practices, I am looking to work with startups or large companies that are making a social, creative or environmental impact using technology. I also have an interest and some experience in design thinking as well as undergraduate experience studying Physics.


Here are some of the skills and practices that I can bring to the table

A Few Accomplishments

Below you'll find a sample of some of the recent side projects I've worked on or articles I've written
