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.

Projects

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).

7. Secret Family Recipes

In this project I worked on a cross functional team as a UI Developer to build a multi-page marketing website for users to create, access and share secret family recipes. The pages had responsive mobile and desktop screen widths, and a call to action button to link users to the React application.
