With over six years in the tech industry, I've made the unconventional leap from law to programming — no formal education, just pure drive. My passion lies in crafting user interfaces, mastering JavaScript, and diving deep into design patterns and object-oriented programming. My philosophy? Embrace the tough problems and revel in devising ingenious solutions. I firmly believe it's never too late to break into development. It's all about the will to make it happen!

  • JavaScript is my forte — I can guide you in mastering the art of clean coding and unraveling the intricacies of vanilla JavaScript, which is a frequent hot topic in interviews. Plus, I'll share insights on the dos and don'ts of JavaScript coding, helping you elevate your coding style to the next level.
  • Web Animations. If you're looking to delve into the world of animations, I can demystify the principles that bring beauty to websites. My experience in the gaming industry has equipped me with knowledge in areas like batch rendering, canvas, and shaders — though a heads-up, a love for mathematics is pretty essential for these topics.
  • Interviews can be daunting, but I'm here to help. I'll guide you through both the theoretical and psychological aspects of interview preparation. Having successfully navigated my way into a European company and now conducting interviews myself, I can offer insights into logic puzzles, JavaScript, CSS, and related topics that often come up in tech interviews.
