Toronto-based Front End Developer

About

Hi! I’m Rafaela. I’m a Front-End Developer based in Toronto and a recent graduate of HackerYou's Bootcamp. I create sleek, user-friendly websites and applications.

I come from both an arts and client-advising background. I work effectively on a team, have experience in project management and am adept at collaborating with clients to meet their needs, while serving the best interests of a project.

With my keen eye for details and design, I can rock a PSD conversion down to the pixel. I write clean, modular code. My hunger to build and understand how things work has lead to a love for JavaScript, jQuery and React.js.

When I’m not coding, you can find me cooking, playing with dogs (that unfortunately aren’t mine), and checking out live theatre.

For more on my journey to a career as a Front End Developer, please checkout my Medium article, The Art of Coding.
