About

Hi there, I'm Negin and I'm a front-end developer based in Toronto, Canada! I got my start in web-development in the 2000s, styling my Neopets' profile page and creating Sailor Moon fan pages in Geocities. I'm passionate about creating intuitive, responsive and accessible websites.

I have a Bachelor of Applied Computer Science from Dalhousie University and a Certificate of Web Development Immersive from Juno College of Technology. Read about my experience. Currently working as a Software Engineer at Drop!

When I'm not coding by moonlight - I'm drawing, running, or playing N64 games (all at the same time!) Oh, and I love cats.ヽ(=^・ω・^=)丿
