Welcome to my little corner of the Internet! I'm a front-end developer, designer and digital storyteller. While I'm currently based in Toronto, Canada, I have also lived on both coasts. My storytelling roots extend back to university where I ran my campus newspaper and then a national student press co-operative. Before becoming a full-time developer, I worked as a digital editor at The Globe and Mail. I was an early participant in both Ladies Learning Code and HackerYou and I'm extremely passionate about technology and media — and how they can work together to tell amazing stories.
I take a storytelling approach to all of my projects, developing a narrative for any brand, event or idea.
I offer both site design and consultation on existing designs, ensuring your big dreams can become reality.
Using the latest technologies, your project will be fully scalable and will look good on devices of any size.
Ladies Learning Code needed a one-page website for a two-day hackathon-meets-workshop event. The site was customized from a bootstrap template. It is fully responsive and includes several jQuery plugins, like sliders and a countdown. Challenges included optimizing the large, interactive event schedule for all screen sizes.Visit Site
The Sisters of Service, a Toronto-based, national religious community, wanted to share their extensive, almost 100-year history with a digital audience. The site focuses on telling the stories of the nuns' many missions where they assisted immigrants in their transition to Canadian life.Visit Site
This was a class project I completed while at HackerYou. We were given the design and site assets and had to do the build. It was meant to simulate working with a client in the real world. Challenges included creating a popup modal box for each team member and making the site responsive.Visit Site
This was a class project I completed while at HackerYou. The goal was to create a one-page, multi-section site. I chose a wedding theme and designed and developed the project from the ground up. Challenges included showing and hiding elements depending on where a user is on the site and hooking up a form for RSVPing.Visit Site
Watching movies is a hobby of mine, so developing a web application around a movie API was right up my alley. I chose to create a review site based on the American Film Institute’s top 100 films of all time. Challenges included setting up AJAX requests to search for specific films and using jQuery to display only the information I wanted to on the site.Visit Site
