About Me

Hello, my name is Alissa. I am a Front End Developer in Toronto. I am passionate about creating applications that are accessible and aim to improve people's lives.

Programming requires a mix of problem solving and creativity that exhilarates my mind. Even though my favourite courses in school were math and economics, I have always been attached to the arts. In my spare time, I love to practice yoga and write fiction. Being able to find something that strikes the perfect balance between both worlds felt like coming home .
