About Me (so what's your deal?)
I am a front-end web developer, currently enrolled in HackerYou's Web Development Immersive program.
I want to build products and services that will make the internet (and the world!) easier to navigate. I am committed to writing precise and exacting code in service of clean and accessible design. I believe in doing more good than bad.
I'm also an ALA-accredited librarian! I spent 5 years working as a legal research librarian for Bay Street law firms, where I conducted research for corporate litigation, large-scale M&A, and business development.
I've had a pretty buttoned-up career so far, and I'm ready to get weird.Let's talk!
My Work (whatcha working on?)
Feels Like 45
A paired programming project using APIs.
This app maps City of Toronto cooling centres that are made available when the City declares an Extreme Heat alert. The app also uses Leaflet JS and the Dark Sky weather API.

Single Page PSD Conversion
A PSD design converted into a single page site.
Provided with a Zeplin file showing the completed design, I built this pixel-perfect responsive website using HTML and CSS, without the use of layout tools such as Flexbox or Grid.

My Values (all jokes aside)
This is what matters to me.
I take my time to understand a problem from all angles, in order to make consistent and informed decisions.
D&I is an ongoing and evolving practice, not a buzzword for holidays and Pride month.
I thrive on supportive teams where I can learn from my peers and pay it forward by teaching others.
I'm excited to build products that consider the needs of all users.
