A Little Bit About Me

About Me

Halifax, Nova Scotia 🇨🇦

I can remember myself being a teenager with a smartphone and wondering how all these apps were made. Once I started researching, it led me to coding.

I started my journey into coding in August of 2018. At this time I'd finished a degree and was working, but I realized that the work I was doing wasn’t something I loved. As I started to think about this reality more and more, I realized that the subject I was mainly interested in was technology and how things were made.

These days, I am finishing up my final year at the Nova Scotia Community College in the IT Web Programming diploma. In this program I'm growing my skills in building appealing data-driven web application, and am scheduled to graduate in the spring of 2021.
