About Me

I'm a Vancouver based junior web developer and creative strategist. I recently finished the New Media Design & Web Development program at BCIT where I learned how to design and build websites from the ground up. I'm currently working as a freelancer and searching for that 'perfect fit' position on a team I can grow with.

My favourite days are spent in the space between being a designer and being a developer, I love projects where I get to be a part of both processes. As a developer I push the boundaries on my designs, because I know the code to make it happen, and as a designer I force myself out of my coding comfort zone to create and discover new possibilities.

what I do.


Strategy is an essential step before beginning any digital project. It lays the foundation for the direction you’re going to head in, helps defines your goals, and makes clear the needs of your company and your users. Having a great digital strategy will save time later on.

I love strategizing, I love discovering your needs, your users needs, and determining what solutions will best suit your goals. Not sure where to begin? Not a problem, I know what questions to ask to help get the ball rolling.

Developing a new website can mean a lot of different things, it can mean coding something from the ground up, taking a template and customizing it, or finding a creative way to use “drag & drop” website builders. There really isn’t one universal “best” way to take your brand digital, but there is a best way for you and that’s what I strive to find.

I specialize in building (& tweaking) custom Wordpress themes. Why did I choose this platform? Because it’s easy for you to manage your own changes as you go. It empowers you to regularly refresh the content, graphics, and photos on your site without having to consult a developer for every little change. Interested in using another platform? I can definitely help you with that too.

Design means something different to everybody, I believe that your digital design should represent the values of your business, your brand voice, and your goals. It’s important to have these defined before beginning to explore the look and feel of your next project.

Not sure where to start? I’ve got you covered, with lots of questions to help you nail down exactly what you’re trying to communicate. I'm a digital design so I work best with digital layouts and website graphics. Need branding done? I can recommend a few brillant graphic designers.

Can't wait to see what we'll build together.
