👋 Hi! I'm a Toronto-based developer, designer, and writer.
I embrace a holistic approach to web media by thinking across code, content, UI, and UX: I'm just as passionate about creating beautiful, user-friendly webpages as I am about developing technical solutions for client-facing content.
Fun fact: I have a PhD in art history from the University of Toronto and an MA (also in art history) from University College London. Art and research are very important me, as are critical analysis and writing (my academic work is currently archived here). My work and worldview are built on those passions and skills, which makes my approach to the web unique.
Otherwise, I enjoy creative hobbies such as illustration, producing music and DJing, and various art-adjacent activities. I also like brachycephalic dogs, bicycles, and cafés.
