about me.

Hi! I'm Ashley, a front-end web developer currently based in Toronto.

I specialize in building user friendly, fun, and semantic websites that are highly intuitive and accessible.

My background in education and project management has refined my attention to detail, ability to communicate with and understand the needs of potential clients, and left me with a love for efficient and collaborative work flows.

When I'm not coding, you can find me cycling around the city, reading internet related things, or playing music with my friends.
