About Speaker

I lead International Developer Relations (DevRel) for GitHub. I am on a mission to help every developer be a part of the open source ecosystem and grow their software development skills through the power of GitHub.
I run programs to support developers’ learning journey, help open source projects grow and for engineers to better use GitHub in their development workflows.
Being an active developer, I also frequently contribute to the development and improvement of the GitHub platform. You can also find me speaking at various developer events sharing my learnings, running workshops, or sharing tips & tricks.
When I am not working, you can find me developing side-projects, reading books of various genres, studying filmmaking and honing my acting & stage-anchoring skills.
