Hi! I'm Alex, a front-end developer based in Toronto.

I am a proud graduate of the Web Development Immersive program at HackerYou College of Technology. After years of working in administration, I learned to use my passion for detail and communication to convey my ideas in a creatively new way. I look forward to continue being challenged and learning to solve problems to build accessible and responsive content that provides delightful user experiences.

When I'm not writing code you'll find me climbing indoors (outdoors soon!), playing board games, or nerding out about the latest Sci-Fi movies.
