About Me

I am a front end developer living in Toronto. I've always had an interest in coding and taught myself HTML as a teenager and studied communications at the University of Toronto. When I completed my degree, I began working in TV production. I never felt quite satisfied in this industry, which led me to refocusing my career on something that satisfied both my creativity, curiousity, and desire to innovate. Re-enter coding. Since attending HackerYou I've found a career that does all that and more, and I've developed a passion for building accessible User Interfaces that are a delight to use.

When Iā€™m not coding, you can find me casually critiquing poor user experiences, watering my ridiculously large collection of houseplants, or coaching Toronto's oldest roller derby team, the Smoke City Bandits.

API Web Application
