A Junior Web Developer with an inquisitive mind and a love for science and languages, whether they be spoken like English and French, or typed out as code (as is the case with Ruby and CSS).  

I enjoy dabbling in back end, and find front end equally as rewarding. While both can be challenging, to be able to style a website in such a way that the many individual parts are able to blend together seamlessly and optimize the user experience is something that I strive to achieve. In particular, I enjoy implementing CSS styling and transitions to capture the attention of the user. However, I do understand that at times minimalistic styling will fit certain webpages better.

The idea that there are multiple different languages which are constantly evolving is slightly daunting but nevertheless, my aspiration for the future is to keep on learning new material to supplement my current knowledge in the field.
