Full Stack Developer

About


I'm a Canadian full stack developer currently working in the Django framework, the majority of my frontend work is done using javascript with some implementations of Vue, React.

I also have professional experience with cloud computing, first started with Digital Oceans and most recently AWS EC2. I've worked extensively with apache2 but most recently I have migrated most projects I work on to Nginx for better performance and its ability to scale.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Ryerson University with a focus in web development and theoretical mathematics.
