As a tester I’m constantly looking for ways to grow and learn; whether that be through taking courses, reading blogs or bouncing ideas off people I look up to in the field.

In the past, I have worked on projects in the following industries: Trade, Education, online and card payments, Retail and e-Commerce and have worked in Agile (Scrum, Kanban), Continuous Delivery and Waterfall environments.

I was the founder of the Stockholm Software Testing Talks meet-up and a co-founder of the WeTest Auckland testing meet-up. I was also a co-instructor for the BBST Foundations course.

I’m an avid Toastmaster (ACB, ALB): am currently the Area Director of G2. (I oversee and support clubs in Skåne and half of Denmark).
