I am a front-end engineer at Memrise, the world's most entertaining language learning app. At Memrise, I'm currently involved in driving forward our transition to a new stack built in React. I deliver high-quality features to a user base of hundreds of thousands and love seeing the impact I can make for our language-learning users.
