Hello & Welcome

I am

Hi there,

I have had the superb opportunity to be an integral part of creating and deploying applications and systems for smaller startups as well as medium to large organizations in both the private and public sectors for over ten years.

I have enjoyed a depth of experience as an application support specialist, a developer, a systems engineer, and a team lead. Of all my roles, being an Automation Engineer has been the most engaging, and one I have sought to specialize in both personally and professionally, for over six years.

I have a broad range of knowledge and experience with a variety of Automation tools and am an active contributing member of the QA community, publishing articles and giving presentations to help improve the understanding and skill of fellow QA Engineers globally.
