Skills

Development

I specialize in front-end development with tools such as ES16 and SCSS. My courses were taught in Java and taught mostly systems programming. I consider myself a full-stack developer, I am able to approach any challenge put before me. I love programming because it's the perfect crossing between logic and creativity. I would really like to focus on improving my skills in SysArch and DevOps.

  • Javascript : Babel, Gulp, Meteor
  • Front-end : HTML5, CSS3, SASS
  • Server : WordPress, Craft, Unix

Design

I enjoy using typography, ratios, layout, and animations to create a unique and engaging user experience. Regardless if I am creating my own design or implementing another's, I work hard to release beautiful things into the world. I believe that less is more, and that communication is esential to creating a successful design.

  • Layout : Typography, Grid, Ratio, Color
  • User Experience : Animation, Preformance
  • Creative : Logos, Branding, Photography
