Turning creativity into reality

Hi, I'm Alisa
Front-End || UI Design

Self-taught Full Stack Web Developer with a passion for design and all-things-aesthetic

Introduction

Who I Am.

About me

I am an emerging Full-Stack Web Developer. After completing my Kinesiology degree at McMaster University, I began an intensive Full-Stack Web Development program at Lighthouse Labs. I have since been building projects and learning as much as possible!

Coding & Design

I have experience using languages and technologies such as JavaScript, HTML, CSS, SQL, React, Next.js, Ruby on Rails and Figma. My main focus is on building full-stack web applications using various frameworks, with an emphasis on the frontend and UI design.

Hobbies

During my free time, I enjoy playing sports and exercising (what else did you expect from a ex-Kinesiology student?). I used to play volleyball and Olympic weightlift competitively. I also love to travel. If I am not at the gym then I am probably planning my next trip.
