Welcome to my online portfolio!


I am a Web Developer based in the Greater Toronto Area and have worked on websites since 1997.

In the early-to-mid-90's, being "online" meant using a dial-up modem to access bulletin board systems (BBS). These modems would screech all sorts of awful sounds as your computer established a connection. Kids of my generation got to experience the Internet as it took form from these early beginnings in the 90's.

The summer after I graduated high school, I picked up a mammoth-sized book on HTML coding, and before long, I had created my first Website on Geocities. Back then, it was all about being flashy with animated GIFs and embedded MIDI tunes. Nowadays, the focus is on accessibility and ease of use -- but not at the sacrifice of great design!
