Skills


I have recently graduated from the University of Auckland with a BSc, majoring in both Computer Science and Information Systems. This has given me not only a basis of technical knowledge but also an understanding of effective methods to put technology into practice when developing systems. I am comfortable both with technical aspects such as coding as well as higher level strategies of planning and execution.

I have skills in both front-end and back-end web and app development, with a keen interest in UI/UX design. I am familiar with several commonly used technologies and frameworks and believe I have a solid basis of knowledge which allows me to pick up new skills quickly and work efficiently.

I enjoy visual design and would love the chance to learn and further develop my skills in this area.
