About Me

headshot of Sofia

I am a front-end developer transitioning from a sustainability consultant, with a background in design, project management, and business development, who tackles problems with a systems-thinking approach. I am a "Builder" who is passionate about and dedicated to collaborating with others to solve problems and develop solutions with a balance of practicality and creativity.

I am excited to work on innovative projects that help improve user experience and make a positive impact in the world. Anything to do with improving the environment and human health, fixing, space-saving, and/or making things work more efficiently, count me in!

I like to stay active by trying new things and helping others whenever possible, as I believe learning should never stop. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, practising yoga (prefer hot yoga), gardening, playing sports, dancing (hip-hop & latin), attending events, reading, learning new skills, experimenting with new healthy recipes, playing board games, and completing escape rooms.

My Projects

HIIT Workout Timer

This High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout timer app allows users to customize the number of exercises and sets they would like for their workout. The idea came about as a request from a friend that I workout with via video chat during the Covid Lockdown. This saved us time from having to press start and stop, and adjusting the time after each set.

Flowerful

Do you have a green thumb? This app allows users to search plants according to colour, helping users design the perfect garden with colour coordination. It features a side bar where users can save their favourite plants while they browse.
