So you're here to learn more about me. Excellent! I love talking about myself 😝. How did I get into tech? I love learning new things. Naturally, tech was the perfect place to be. It’s always changing and always moving forward. First, there was jQuery, then Angular, then React, and now we have Vue.Js. Holy moly! Some people might find this overwhelming but I love it. You’ll never run out of things to learn. #StudentMindset
Beside being a developer, I’m also a Podcaster. I founded and host a podcast called the Events Podcast. This has been a super fun experience for me. I had no idea what I was doing, but I dived right in. I learned by actually doing it. What I learned from this experience is “don’t worry about failing, focus on trying”.
Currently, I'm working as a Frontend Engineer at GitLab. You can follow my journey of becoming a Senior developer in my #SamDocs series on Instagram Story!
Invite Me to Speak
I love sharing what I've learned. I've spoken at high schools, colleges, and tech companies. From my experience on how I grew my personal brand to 20k+ within a year OR how I switched careers into tech without a CS degree OR how kindness has made me more successful. My goal is to bring value, motivate action, and inspire kindness in your audience! Learn more about my previous speaking events here, and invite me to speak!

I always get stressed about make the perfect app. And what always end up happening, I never get it done. So I created this challenge. It’s all about learning by doing. The only rule, it must be completed within 24 hours. Anything more, it's too fancy 😜
Check out what I have built so far: CodePen .
