About Me

headshot of Sofia

I am a front-end developer with a background in environment and sustainable development. I am a true "Builder" whether it be physical construction or on the web through code. I enjoy problem solving and developing solutions with a balance of practicality and creativity. Anything to do with 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 Hot Yoga, playing sports, dancing (Hip-Hop & Latin), attending events, learning new skills, experimenting with healthy recipes, playing board games, and completing escape rooms.

My Projects

HIIT Workout Timer

This HIIT workout timer app allows users to customize the number of exercises and sets they would like for the workout. The idea came about as a request from a friend that I workout via video chat during the Quarantine. 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.
