About Me

Hi there! My name is Alex Clarke and I’m a front-end web developer living in Toronto. I absolutely love coding fun interactive websites using JavaScript and jQuery, such as my recent personal project, NXNE Adventure. When I'm at work, I enjoy working on teams because of the opportunities to deepen my knowledge and bounce creative ideas around.

Previously to becoming a front-end web developer, I was a practicing artist with a BFA in Visual Arts from York University. By combining my background as an artist with my modern web development skills, I am able to create pixel perfect responsive websites that surprise and delight users.

When I’m not working, you can find me geeking out with comic books or enjoying a program on Netflix. I am always creating new websites, fine-tuning my coding craft, and learning more about application programming in my down time.
