About me...

Xoeseko stands for "only believe" in the ewe language a moniker I try to live by every single day.

I am a passionate product builder. I like to work in teams to create value for people.

Creative at heart, I am also passionate about poppin' and dancing in general. This lead me to teach breakdance to younger kids in my neighborhood and beyond since the age of 14.

This passion for transmitting knowledge helped me be a better teaching assistant for programming at the university of Geneva.
