Front-End Web Developer

I am a Front-End Web Developer based in Toronto, Ontario. My education background includes a Bachelor of Arts (History) from the University of Western Ontario and a Certificate in Architecture from Ryerson University.  I am a former apprentice ironworker bringing my love of building and problem solving to the web industry. I have a strong minimalist aesthetic.  When not developing on the web I can usually be found watching Toronto Blue Jays baseball and Toronto Raptors basketball, reading, listening to my records, and drooling over sneakers.

Tattoo Shop – Custom WordPress theme

A custom WordPress theme designed and coded from scratch for a hypothetical tattoo shop. It was designed using Photoshop and Sketch. The website is fully responsive and coded to look great on any screen size. Each custom-coded page uses Advanced Custom Fields to make content entry easy for the client. The artist profiles include a jQuery lightbox gallery for the portfolios of each artist. The contact page connects to the Google Maps API to display the shop’s location so prospective clients can easily find the shop. The blog is a great place for the tattoo shop to share updates and highlight important events.

Horror Villain Quiz – JavaScript interactive site

A Halloween-themed quiz so the user may find out which horror film villain they are. Using JavaScript and jQuery, points are tallied based on the user’s responses to the questions. At the end of the quiz whichever character has the most points will be displayed as the final result. The HTML and CSS is fully responsive and was designed in Photoshop. This site was designed and developed in partnership with Giordan Battaglin.

Using the command line, the project’s code was kept under strict version control using Git and Github.
