I build things for the web

I currently work as a Digital Designer for Bestbuy.ca. Working in an Agile e-commerce environment helps me maintain a diverse set of both soft and hard skills.

When I’m not coding and learning about the latest design trends, I’m reading internet memes and painting tacky acrylic landscapes. I believe heavily in giving back, so I also volunteer to redesign sites for non-profits, especially those dedicated to helping the queer community.
