About me

Photo of Ovie sitting on a red chair smiling

Hi and welcome to my little corner of the internet.

I believe the internet is the single greatest equaliser in the history of man so as you can imagine, I build stuff for it.

My work includes anything that can be accessed via the web like applications, marketing pages, or written content. Usability and efficiency are where I spend the most time when working.

Here are a few technologies I've been working with recently:

  • TypeScript
  • React
  • Node.js
  • ContentStack/Contentful/Prismic
  • Google Cloud Platform

When I'm not working, I'm either walking my dog, listening to Yuval Harari, or just aimlessly browsing Reddit for funny photos.

I'm currently not looking for new opportunities but don't hesitate to get in touch about anything at all.
