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!
Interactive Media Web and Mobile Application Development Diploma • April 2017
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.
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.
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.
I was working for a pest control company while I was going through college and thought it would be a great idea to redesign the website. I gained experience working with a client, and had something to add to my portfolio.Website, Redesign, Responsive
As a final term project at North Island College, a classmate and I worked on what we call a "social media aggrigate". I was in charge of all front end design work. The project is still undergoing active maintenance.UI Design, Front End Development
The Prevailing Wins Dragonboat team website was another North Island College project. 6 of us worked in a team to produce a WordPress website. I was in charge of Logo design and overseeing all general front end designs.WordPress, Branding, Project Managment
I found an interesting article on the web covering basic CPS concepts and thought it would be interesting to display them in a more fun and interactive way. Utilizing Swiper and Materialize.cssjQuery, Fun, Educational
This was a side project I did while in high school. One of the janitors noticed some of my work in the hallway and approached me with a request. I transformed an old photo he had taken into a vector piece so his memory could live on through this digital illustration.Game, HTML, Animation
My very first iOS application; nothing fancy here. I hooked up Apple's MapKit and dropped a bunch of pins at great swimming locations in the Comox Valley and surroudning areas. Users can also view a tableview of the data, and selecting a location directs to a details page with directions.iOS, Swift 3
Working with Taylor was a joy, he knows what he's doing and he's committed to doing it well. He is open to taking criticisms and gives valuable feedback. He knows when to speak his mind to better a project, and knows when to trust the process.Ian McKenzie
Taylor is always up for a challenge. He knows his limits, but he is constantly pushing to break those limits and widen his horizon. Moreover he is a great friend and a nice human being (computer nerd) who always gave me ride to the college.Sid Parmar
Taylor is a hard working, reliable employee who is loyal and always on time.Dave Dumesnil
