Now…

I'm doing a few stuff at the moment…

Freelancing πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»

I'm a web developer, working exclusively with Toptal clients since 2017.

Indie hacking πŸš€

My ambition is to earn enough from my own products to replace my freelancing income. I'm particularly interested in the online learning space. πŸ€“

Xebot

Xebel

This is an extensible and highly customisable online course platform.

I haven't properly validated the idea, and I don't yet understand the market well enough. I'm just personally excited about it, really believe in the idea, and can't stop thinking about it! 🀩

I know that if I try to "validate the idea" before I build it, I'll spend the next 10 years trying to do just that, at which point I'll probably just get bored with it. I'm willing to accept the risk of building a product nobody wants, over the risk of analysis paralysis. The worst case is that I'll learn a ton from the experience! πŸ€“

Toptal community πŸ’¬

I lead the Toptal community in London, regularly organising events and welcoming new members into the network. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions! πŸ˜‰
