Hello world, I am John

I have a passion for writing clean, dry, and structured code to build accessible and responsive web applications. I have a deep curiosity for learning more about web development and am excited to make an impact on the way people's lives are affected by it.

About Me

My introduction

Before my Web Developer chapter, I was a Kinesiology student at York University. The program focused on physical activity and how the human body's movement impacts health, well-being and quality of life. I left that role with a strong ability to address challenging problems and issues through: creative thinking, inquiry, innovation, analysis, evaluation, and synthesis of information including numerical data or observable facts.
To begin my career change, I completed Juno College's Web Immersive Bootcamp where I completed 5 projects independently and on a team. I now confidently use my skills in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript as well as other front end technologies to build accessible and responsive applications.
