About Me

My knowledge of modern web development includes HTML, CSS, SCSS, ES6 JavaScript, the Vue, React and Redux front-end libraries as well as Node.js and Express on the back end. Most recently I've added unit and end-to-end testing to my skillset with the Chai assertion library and Cypress.

My first career was as an editor and proofreader of English, so my love of codes and syntax runs deep, and I bring the same eye for detail and respect for deadlines I developed in the publishing sphere to the world of coding.
