Like many good things in life, my work begins with human connection and relationship. I’m a web developer and mental health therapist after all.

I enjoy taking the time to get things right and am a big believer that slow is smooth and smooth is fast. I typically just work on a few contracts per year.

Each project I work on goes through a full design and development cycle all the way from setting initial business goals to launching a finished website live on the internet. Along the way I meet regularly with clients and also provide full access to a live staging website to monitor progress.

I also do some contract frontend development work for larger companies working as part of an existing engineering team. I have experience with marketing, writing, internationalization, brand development, and data visualization. From a technical perspective I am most comfortable in React-based codebases and have solid HTML and CSS fundamentals.

I have a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from the University of Victoria and am a Registered Social Worker in the province of Alberta.
