About Me


I am a web developer based out of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelors in Japanese Language and Culture with Honours, and have certificates of completion from Harvard CS50x and CS50 Web Development with Python and Javascript.

I have written both the front-end and back-end code for a variety of projects related to my interests, and made designs for them that match my unique tastes. All of my projects were written with Javascript, Python (Django), HTML, and CSS. I also have some experience with SQL and C.


When I am not coding, I'm usually at the ski hill in the winter, or on a trampoline or diving board in the summer. My other interests include filming and editing skiing videos, reading and translating Japanese media, Japanese outdoor fashion, and travelling.
