About Me

After undertaking an online course in front end development and then enrolling in the Founders & Coder's Academy Bootcamp, I decided that software development was my new career. The opportunity to work through problems collaboratively to come up with a tangible final product I find extremely rewarding. Web development has a never ending spiral of continuous learning, the fast paced ever changing environment provides rich rewards and excitement. I'm now in the pursuit of becoming a front-end wizard.
