By day, I am Director of Developer Relations at Directus. By night, I run You Got This!. At the weekend, I am run hackathons with Hack Labs. I love educating developers at all points in their journey. I've previously worked at Deepgram, Orbit, Vonage, GitHub, and run a developer events agency. Learn more about me here.
