๐Ÿ‘‹ About

Hello, I'm Vincent.

Iโ€™m a software creator making web and native applications using Ruby on Rails and React Native for humans. I'm also a great dad, bad husband and a general minimalist (in a good way).

I know how to fly aeroplanes commercially and that has been my dream since I can remember (age 5 and up). I spent many years pursuing this and was blind to everything else around me โ€” silly me. Then I got the ticket, and life happened, and now I code for a living โ€” and let me tell you, I am so thankful for what I do.

In general I am a calm person and like to make jokes when things get difficult โ€” it's an interesting character flaw that comes at you unexpected. I don't like being pushed around or told what to do, so I might end spectacularly in a fireball one of these days.

When I step outside the "technology" bubble โ€” and boy do I (we) need it โ€” I enjoy being with my daughter and wife, walking and generally travellingโ€ฆ and doing absolutely nothing (except the driving). Oh and I absolutely love rollercoasters โ€” so you'll find me riding one if the opportunity arises.

This site acts as portal to my past and present self that one day I can look back on, on my steps forward and also missteps along the way. Life isnโ€™t a straight road, so itโ€™s nice to have a space of my own to share and reflect on.
