Junior Full Stack Web Developer
- Richmond, BC
I'm 5 foot 3 but 6 foot full of energy. After graduating from UBC, I moved abroad to the UK and began my years of self discovery, a prevalent phenomenon for the early-twenty-year-old in the common era. I travelled and added a variety of jobs and skills to my experience list, all of which I can argue as fundamental in my personal growth, until I stumbled upon (and subsequently fell in love with) web development. I haven't looked back since.
