About Me

More than just a full stack developer, my other interests include:

  • Motorbikes: I got my full motorbike license a few years back and my very first real bike was a Honda Twister, 250cc!
  • Travel: I've visited 17 countries and lived in 3. The endless variety of cultures in all the different parts of the world really energizes me.
  • Life Coaching: I am a qualied life coach and I use those skills to help people identify & pursue their goals, dreams, desires.
  • Music and Art: Kandinsky is my favourite artist and to relax, I paint with acryllics. Photography adventures are also super fun and the guitar is my instrument of choice.
  • Culinary Skills: I'm a total foodie with an appreciation for exotic tastes. I enjoy spicy flavours and I believe most meals should be accompanied with a glass of good red or rosé wine!

When I made the decision to enroll in web development studies, I chose Lambda School.

These are the projects I've completed.

1. User Interface

This project showcases Semantic HTML, CSS Fundamentals, CSS Flexbox Module, and Git. I created a multi page website, adding to the missing HTML elements and CSS specificity problems that needed solving. I created an additional web page that was linked from the navigation (hover your mouse over the image to view).

11. Secret Family Recipes

In this project I worked on a cross functional team as a Front End React Developer to build a website for users to create, access and share secret family recipes. I worked with a UI and Back End Developer to ensure that users can seamlessly navigate through the tools of logging into their accounts, or signing up for the first time, and then adding their recipes and viewing them.
