About Me

Greetings! My name's alex and you found my DOMAIN! I'm a a Humber College student looking to dive into the web development industry. How exciting! While you're here, take a look at my portfolio, there you can see the great things I've created. I've surprised myself with the things I've achieved with just one year of Javascript and one year of PHP experience. I created this website using PHP and Bootstrap.

I've used a variety of free design software to create prototypes and wireframes, and I'm able to quickly learn how to use new design software. I know design principles like alignment, color theory and spacing. As a back-end developer, I enjoy finding solutions to difficult problems if it challenges what I thought to be possible. My mind often wanders to the problem at hand even while I'm not at work. I can work with just about anyone or I can work independently.

When I'm not coding, you can find me playing my favorite games like Hearthstone, Magic the Gathering, Final Fantasy games, and Celeste. I like to play the classics.
