learning, finding, designing, developing impact
I code interfaces as a Front-End Developer with awesome design skills, but what I really want to do is to make a real impact for the people that use my products. Currently based out of Toronto but I prefer to say I'm a person of the world, I take every chance I get to explore culture and build something new.
I love developing websites and apps
that deliver magical experiences
by providing real value.
First I learn everything I can about
who and what I need to build so that
I find the problems that need to be solved.
I’ll then iterate on possible designs,
theorizing what could solve the problem
and testing to see what does.
And finally, I’ll develop the solution in code
so that I can deploy it to real people
and create a real impact.
Working on these products requires constant learning and work.
After a bad year, the culture of the Computer Engineering Club needed to change so that we could make the largest student hackathon in Alberta even larger. My solution was custom Slack emojis and I built a way to democratize them.
Personal stylists can take on more clients using image detection, data science and a mobile app. Creating User flows and ER diagrams helped me build an app that can bring stylists to the amount of business personal trainers enjoy.
I was still falling an hour and a half after everyone else in the beginners class was able to stand, but my mind I was focused on the details of what I was doing, because the details are where you find success.
Reading Carol Dweck taught me that every challenge needs the right mindset. At the same time, my peers in my design course were being overwhelmed by the workload. I experimented with how a tool could help them change.
