I’m Emmanuel Etti and I contribute to my corner of the world as a software developer and photographer. Before transitioning into tech, I worked for community based charities where I was fortunate to serve and learn from a diverse range of people. I believe that technology and creativity can be used to make a positive impact in the lives of those around me and I'm on a personal journey to find out what that practically looks like.
