I'm a software developer with an interest in front-end web development
From a young age I have always had an interest in all sorts of geeky things - video games, sci fi, board games - you name it! So when I first learned to code in University it was a natural fit. Since then I have become a well rounded programmer, with a strong foundation in the low level concepts of C and assembly to the more managed worlds of C# and Java.
Lately I have taken an greater interest in web design, as I enjoy being challenged and learning new things, and I like that I can apply my technical knowledge while allowing my creativity to flow.

I began my time at the U of A enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts program, with plans to eventually pursue an degree in education. During my second year I realized that I wanted to do something in IT. Here I learned about software engineering, computer architecture & networking, and computer graphics. I also picked up a number of programming languages: C, C++, Java, Python, and Lisp.
I graduated high school, receiving honors with distinction. I enjoyed math and science so I took all available courses in physics, biology and chemistry, as well as calculus.
