About

I recent spent the summer working through the HackerYou bootcamp program polishing my skills with the latest technologies, while building clean and functional websites. I'm now ready to take on challenging and creative projects.

With a background of Computer Science and I spent a couple years working on a Human-Computer Interaction project designing and building a new interface device, using a 3D printer to design and prototype, while writing the code that brought it to life. Following that, I joined a small startup company in the online auction space where I helped launch and manage the Toronto region.
