about

personal

I’m a Front End Developer based in Toronto. For the past 6 years I have been a Stay-at-Home Dad to Harrison. Now that my son is older, I’m excited to continue my career!

When I'm not in front of VS Code, you're likely to find me watching Raptors basketball, at the gym or working on another Lego project with my son.

professional

My previous experience working in IT and education in Psychology informs my approach to development: understanding how people think is just as important as understanding technical components. I’m looking to explore opportunities that challenge me as a developer and work with a team that would benefit from life experience, perseverance and a solutions-focused mindset.

Check out some of my projects below. If you want to get in touch you can contact me using the email form or reach out via LinkedIn or Twitter.
