Coming from a SAIT-fueled software development background, my quest to become a full-stack developer pushed me into pursuing additional credentials in Electronic Publishing, at Mount Royal University, to cover the bases of UI/UX. This was fine, but it simply wasn't enough; I needed more—to become the fullest full stack developer, dead or alive. This goal spawned an urge to learn more about the environments my code will run on.

From there, I garnered a deep understanding–and admiration–of the lower-level layers that make up an application, which soon landed me into the field of DevOps. Since then, I have managed to cultivate an air of expertise in both the development of software, the operations that take it through quality assurance into production, and I'll make it look good to boot.
