About me
I have recently completed a web development bootcamp with Le Wagon covering everything to hit the ground running as a junior full stack developer. I am skilled in Ruby, Ruby on Rails, SQL, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, JavaScript and collaborative working on Github. I am a creative and driven individual with a BA Fashion Design degree from the University of Westminster. With 6 years previous experience in the fashion industry as a menswear designer, I pride myself on my eye for detail and design. I am skilled in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, research, illustration, and multi product fashion design. I am excited to combine my new skills with my previous experience and begin a new career in tech.
