I currently work full-time as a Software Engineer here in Ottawa, as well as some freelancing web development with my spare time. I love fixing difficult problems, helping out customers, and learning new things.
Previous to my current position, I worked at an Ottawa-based tech startup where I gained valuable experience building some powerful SaaS products, and before that I wore many hats in the Web Department of a non-profit in Hamilton. These experiences have greatly shaped who I am today and inspire me in the projects I take on today.
I got my start coding at a pretty young age, and fell in love, you might say, with web development fairly early on. It's a hobby-turned-career and am excited each day to still be programming, problem-solving, and learning in this ever-changing tech world.
My Favourite Things
Sports has always been one of the things I most enjoy. I love playing beach volleyball, training for half-marathons, golfing, and exploring the outdoors. In the winter, there are still plenty of volleyball leagues in Ottawa and things to do outdoors. Ottawa is a great city to live!
I also love music. I took piano lessons growing up, but now I mostly just listen to music while I work or travel. I'm not the most artsy person, but I also enjoy doing a bit of photography.
A list of my favourite things wouldn't be complete without mentioning my wonderful and supporting, family, friends, and church "family". I love surrounding myself with these positive influences in my life.
