Hi. My name is Anson, and I'm based out of Toronto. I'm a pianist and U-Waterloo Mechatronics engineering grad turned web-developer and dance music junkie.

Things I can do:

  • Web/Programming
    • I am a full-stack web-developer, but front-end is where I shine
    • LAMP Stack + jQuery + Responsive Web Design (EXPERT)
    • Learning MEAN stack
    • Tools I find indespensible: Bootstrap, LessCSS, Github, Grunt, WordPress
    • Former C/C++/C# and MatLab experience
  • Design
    • UX + information architecture
    • Photoshop/Illustrator
    • Visual Art / Painting
  • Music
    • Piano RCM level 9
    • Ableton Live
    • Melbourne Shuffle (amateur)
  • Business/Marketing
    • Fluent in "biz-dev vernacular" e.g. customer acquisition, conversion funnels, minimum viable product, technical debt, etc.
    • Comfortable advising executives on strategy (with experience as both employee and founder)
    • Tools I've used: Google Analytics/Adwords/DoubleClick, ExactTarget, MailChimp, etc.

Why I was late for work this morning:

  • Soundcloud.com
  • Web Audio API
  • WebGL + THREE.js
  • AngularJS
  • Cyanide and Happiness
