Front-End Web Developer

About Me

Hi, I'm Owen, and if there's one thing I have no shortage of, it's enthusiasm. While working for a communications agency in Toronto, I discovered coding, and since then I haven't looked back. I've recently graduated from HackerYou's Front-end Web Development Immersive program and have devoted over 1,000 hours to learning HTML, CSS, JavaScript and many other tools to make beautiful, responsive websites.

I pride myself on being friendly, approachable, calm, and analytical. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, podcasting, comic books and wearing plaid. I'd love to have the chance to talk with you and share my enthusiasm!

In the meantime, why not check out some of my work?

Skills

I am very proud of the skills I have learned so far, and am always looking to build up more. There is no greater feeling of pride than that of learning a new skill or adding to an existing skill set.

Currently I am very strong in HTML and CSS, and have a good understanding of JavaScript (I'm really enjoying JavaScript and continue to get better). One of my favourite things about coding is that there is always more to learn so I can always keep growing.

I have built up a foundation in the following skills:

HTML5

CSS3/Sass

Responsive Design

JavaScript

jQuery

WordPress/PHP

Git

Github

Terminal

Gulp
