I'm a multi-skilled front-end developer and writer based in Toronto, Canada.
I'm always refining my skills as a creator and as both a front-end and back-end developer. Below you can see just a small glimpse of the work I've done as a front-end developer, applying my past skills in print design, graphic design, animation, writing, and photography!
What's your story?
Born and raised in Niagara Falls, I eventually found myself in love with the city of Toronto, studying at prestigious schools including University of Toronto, Humber College, and HackerYou.
I have years of experience freelancing as a web developer for small businesses and non-profits, as well as a copy editor and writer, trading largely with local publications.
Okay, but what else?
Having graduated from HackerYou's immersive front-end development program, I have become a highly-skilled and dedicated front-end developer, with a deeply-rooted love for what I do.
I have an indomitable passion for giving back to the LGBTQ community, of which I owe so much, and love working with people and working toward making the world a better place through both charity foundations and advocacy.
Most of all, I am dedicated to growing as a person and becoming better every day, however I can. I have a genuine love of all people and will always go out of my way to provide whatever support I can for those in need.
So if you have anything you'd like to talk about, please contact me!
I am a creator
I consider myself a life-long creator and a veteran in web development (though one who is constantly learning and improving).
My philosophy in design has always been to challenge myself and invent new and ambitious ways of developing content. In web development in particular, I pride myself in avoiding prefabs and third-party libraries in my own personal work; if it's something I can learn to do myself, that's what I'm going to do.
I am a programmer
My experience as a programmer began at an early age, when I would explore the inner workings of DOS and write small games using chains of batch scripts.
I am an artist
On the design side of web development, as the son of an art teacher, I had always possessed a certain ability for visual arts and layout. Throughout my life I have constantly worked to improve my aptitude in digital graphics and animation, as well as my instincts in colours and form. With a formal education in print design and layout, I've used my collection of abilities to always come up with new and interesting ways of developing exciting web sites and applications.
