I'm from Ottawa Ontario, and hold a Bachelor's Degree of Applied Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of British Columbia. I spent the first five years of my career working in the Financial Services Industry for Morgan Stanley as a Technology Associate. Initially starting in an HR Business Intelligence and Reporting Solutions Team consisting of 2 application developers, I became familiar with full stack development and got hands on experience developing feature rich Web Applications.
Eventually moving to a larger Strategic Performance Reporting team of approximately 15 developers within Private Wealth Management I was exposed to developing a highly scalable application used by the full Financial Advisor population. I then moved into the lead developer role on the Order Status application which provides a real time view into FA's trades across asset classes. I focus on developing efficient, elegant, and performant UI's which people will enjoy using.
Finally, most recently I've joined Shopify as a Front End Developer.
