Before that, I worked in a cloud computing provider, Skytap and catered the Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to the enterprise customers. Feel free to checkout my LinkedIn profile, or my resume for more information.

With the migration to gatsby, I started to experiment the functional CSS approach with tachyons.

Tools

This site is built with the great gatsby and various plugins, notably:
