About Me

I am a motivated software developer born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I enjoy mobile and web development, Internet of Things, and just about any other area of tech. I am an avid self-learner who thrives in fast-paced, high impact environments, as well as when faced with challenges. I love finding creative solutions to difficult problems through the use of out of the box thinking and I enjoy collaborating with others to build awesome products. When I’m not coding, I can typically be found playing hockey, snowboarding, at the gym, or annoying friends and family.

May 2015 – Present

Bank of Canada

Web Developer Intern

As a web developer, I help develop for the many sites that power the Bank of Canada’s web presence, including BankofCanada.ca, BankofCanadaMuseum.ca, and others. Moreover, I help recommend and implement better ways of doing things, write custom WordPress plugins, and participate in agile projects as well as complete quality assurance testing.

In the Fall of 2016, I worked with a few individuals to design and develop a creative product that describes the story behind the new $10 commemorative bank note for Canada’s 150th anniversary. Within a couple days of launch, the page gathered more than 250k unique visitors and represents an evolution in both the Bank of Canada’s web presence and central banking in general.

In addition to that, I've redesigned the BankOfCanada.ca homepage and developed new, dynamic key market indicators for it. I've also developed an easy way to customize social media meta for the websites we power.
