Senior Software Engineer in Auckland, New Zealand

I'm Dane, a software engineer based in Auckland, New Zealand. I enjoy creating things with code, whether that be websites, applications, or anything in between. TypeScript is my go to language, however, I also enjoy exploring other ecosystems such as Elixir and Rust.

I have a keen focus on designing accessible user centric solutions. With a strong belief in teamwork, listening to the ideas of others, and learning by doing, I'm constantly questioning the given and known, solving the right problems to discover the best solution.

When I'm not in front of a computer screen, I'm probably kiteboarding, sailing around the harbour, or enjoying a fine craft beer.
