Once upon a time, I was struggling to write WordPress loops in Dark Horse Coffee on Spadina. Some random developer next to me could clearly see what was happening, and decided that he would volunteer to help me learn WordPress, then and there. He talked me through the whole logic of it for some time, and I finally started to understand. It was a weird day, but I love that our dev community can be so supportive and generous.
I've seen this magic happen again and again, and I appreciate that now I am in the position to be the mentor. I get such satisfaction out of being able to help another person understand new concepts and get inspired to build great stuff. I volunteer as a mentor to newer developers at both Ladies Learning Code and HackerYou.
I have nearly two years of agency experience as a front end developer. I'm accustomed to tight deadlines and very high standards. My dream role would be on a team that encourages big challenges and promotes ongoing learning. Here's my resume.
