About Me

Welcome to My World of Design and Code

Traditional and Digital Marketer, Designer, Outdoor Road Tripping Enthusiast & Part-Time DJ who loves this changing world, as tomorrow is never the same. With over 25 years of experience in this forever changing industry, one of my many passion lies in helping companies brand themselves professionally and market themselves through various forms of media from print to digital.

Through my career journey, I have learnt Adobe Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, Muse, Flash Animation, HTML, CSS, Joomla CMS, WordPress CMS, Pay Per Click, Social Media Management and Advertising.

…In 2016 I got to fulfil a bucket list dream, discover another passion and that was coding:

I completed an intensive 3-month coding bootcamp through Craft Academy Sweden via their online real-time immersive teaching program. The skill set and knowledge that I have gained from this 3 month course includes Agile Methods and TDD, coding in Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, JQuery, HTML & HAML, and testing with Jasmine, RSpec and Cucumber. I also scaffolded and built web apps for Rails with Postgres, as well as mobile apps using the Ionic framework and IDE tools such as Atom, RubyMine and DreamWeaver. I am very comfortable using Github, setting up branches and using git pong methods. We used Scrum tactics every day to keep up to date and we also had the opportunity to be scrum master and manage coding tasks and the team dynamics.

In life, it is never too late or too old to find your working passion and I am very fortunate to have found mine.
