About Me

I am a web developer, mobile app programmer, and part graphic designer based in beautiful British Columbia. I was first introduced to web design at the age of 12, and have always enjoyed working with computers. I was always so interested at viewing the source code of different websites to try and grasp an understanding of how it all worked. It fascinated me.

After many hours spent teaching myself new web technologies and programming languages, I decided to go to college and peruse it as a career. I look forward to being one of those people who loves what they do, and enjoys going to work in the morning!

Education

North Island College

Interactive Media Web and Mobile Application Development Diploma April 2017

My time at the college was eye opening. I learned so many valuable skills ranging from todays popular programming languages, to working cooperatively on larger projects in a team environment. I started to really enjoy where I was headed and can't wait to get a job. Some of my favorite courses were JavaScript, iOS development with Swift, the Ruby on Rails framework, and HTML5 Games hand coded with the canvas element.

Highland Secondary

Dogwood Diploma 2012

Thought i'd put this in here to fill up some space. Although there wasn't any coding classes available at my high school, graphic design was offered which was probably my favorite course. I got the highest mark in the class, and ended up doing a paid side job for one of the janitors who saw my work hanging in the school hallway.

Work

A College Graduate...

Currently seeking work

I do not have much in terms of tech related job experience besides college projects as of now, but that is going to change. I am currently seeking employment in the industry.

I do however have numerous previous jobs unrelated to web development including a material manager position at EECOL electric; working as a serviceman for a pest control company; as well as a construction position twinning the highway between Edmonton and Fort McMurray.

Skills

I am primarily focused on web development in general terms. I also do have experience working with some of the popular frameworks such as Angular 2+ as well as Node.js. Leveraging my knowledge in these areas should hopefully give me an advantage in the development community.

During my time at the college I also got my hands dirty programming for mobile platforms including both iOS and Android. Some other web-related technologies I know are SASS, version control with Git, WordPress, Drupal, time management platforms including Asana and Toggl, and project management paradigms.
