A modern and tech-savvy teacher / trainer with an engineering background, I have a lot of experience teaching both adults and children of all walks of life. Combining my technical and creative hobbies (coding and digital art) allows me to create crisp and colourful didactic materials for my students.

In addition to teaching I also have work experience at large and medium sized enterprises, which has proven invaluable in my ability to explain context and the relevance of the subject matter to my students.
