About Me

I'm a Computing Science student at Simon Fraser University in beautiful British Columbia! Currently, I'm an instructor for the Web Development bootcamp at Lighthouse Labs and I teach at TeacherCon conferences across Canada for Canada Learning Code.

In Summer 2017, I worked on the future of transit at Spare Labs. Before that, I completed an 8-month Co-op as a Web Application Developer on the EIS team at Hatfield Consultants making cool things with C# and Javascript.

My main interests are technology and education. When I'm not programming, I lead and mentor workshops for Canada Learning Code, post on Twitter and Medium, and jam out on my guitar.

If you're into hip hop, you might also like this interview I did with Opio Lindsey of Souls of Mischief in 2014.

I was helping out at a coding workshop the other day when one of the students came to me saying that her computer wasn’t working properly.
