What

What do I do? Some of my best selected work here:

Progressive Applications
EncryptYou uses the magic of JavaScript to encrypt and decrypt short messages. It was a collaborative paired-programming project and showcases unique responsive design. Write a message, choose your key and tweet your results!
Pixel Perfect Conversions
Soundbyte showcases an example of a responsive PSD conversion. A HackerYou assignment to design and develop a fluid single page website.
Fun With Toronto’s Open Data
Toronto Bike Share Live is a simple application that uses Toronto's open data catalogue to display real-time availabilty of free bikes and empty return slots around the city. The focus was to create a minimal application with one purpose, no bells or whistles.
The Latest Frameworks
PackTrack is a sample progressive web application that uses ReactJS and Google's Firebase to render and store information in real-time. Try the beta now.
Client Focused Creations
G90 Limousine is a single page website. It uses a HTML/CSS, JavaScript and PHP for a simple one page website to drive phone calls and e-mails.
Responsive Web Design
Responsive web design is the standard used for modern web design. It is no longer a matter of developing the mobile version of a website, but rather optimizing for all platforms. PAW Nation is an example of a responsive homepage, an average site with a traditional layout.
