I am a web designer and front-end developer. I make sites that work for everybody and I help other people do that too.
I create responsive web designs and develop them, writing CSS and HTML. I build custom WordPress themes. I provide graphic design and illustration. I have an understanding of web accessibility and knowledge of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
I mentored at a mother-daughter hack day for Ladies Learning Code. I spoke about web accessibility at Accessibility Camp Toronto, the University of Guelph Solutions for Inclusion Accessibility Conference and a girl geeks meetup. I illustrated the Toronto Webgrrls site and helped organize Junior Webgrrls Day.
I worked with Alan Cantor to create a really accessible web site for the Toronto Trailblazers, a cycling club where people who have limited or no vision ride tandems with sighted volunteers, and worked with the members of the Ice Owls, a blind and low-vision hockey team, to give them a site that works for the players.
I volunteer with the First Interfaith Out of the Cold, a downtown Toronto homeless shelter. I started in 2005, and I have welcomed guests, brought in donations, and packed lunches.
I ran the Humewood Community School chess club from 2000 to 2004.
