Resume LinkedIn

I have developed applications, games and websites with clients in Asia and Canada. My experience and education with front end and back end development, game design, data structures & algorithms, design and strategy help me create effective and impactful solutions. At the Master of Digital Media program and through freelance projects I gained professional experience as a software developer. I am comfortable working with a multicultural team in an agile development setting with people from different backgrounds.

Prior to my career as a developer, I was an Art Director/Designer at Ogilvy (March 2015 – July 2018). One of my greatest accomplishments was being an integral part of the creative team on the award-winning campaign "Healthy Hands Chalk Sticks" for ITC Savlon. The team infused soap particles with chalk to promote hand hygiene to children in rural India. The campaign went viral with 3.4 million impressions on Facebook and 4.3 million on Twitter in a period of four days. This campaign was declared as one of the best works of the decade according to the Cannes creativity report 2020.

CDM: 2019 - 2020

In September 2019, I joined the Masters In Digital Media program at The Centre For Digital Media, and expected to graduate in January 2020. I put my skills to use extensively on the industry projects with Canadian Blood Services and The Museum of Vancouver. I was the lead developer on several projects, working in multicultural teams with a variety of skills. I was appointed as the head of the education committee and hosted a series of programming workshops for the cohort on the core principles of HTML, CSS & javaScript.

Several students approach me for technical assistance on their industry and personal projects. For example, I built a custom secure file upload system on a website for people with disabilities (vision/auditory) to participate in rehearsals for Real Wheels Theater Productions (Wordpress, php, mySQL databases, HTML/CSS). Another example is when I assisted developers of another team with debugging typescript, javaScript & React on a Non-Profit Legal Compliance Web App with Pacific Legal Outreach.

VanArts: 2018 - 2019

In July 2018 I left my job at Ogilvy to pursue an accelerated one-year program at The Vancouver Institute of Media Arts focusing on Full Stack Web Development, UI/UX Design and Project Management. I developed a strong foundation in the core principles of programming, databases, security and experienced several agile scrum development cycles.

Within 6 months of my education, five clients approached me for web development services. A bike repair shop in Vancouver, musician in Los Angeles, writer in India, student housing service in Singapore and "EntGuide", an online entertainment guide in Singapore. I chose to work with EntGuide and built a content management system with several custom features. In addition, I designed their logo and did branding for them.
