Web Developer | Music Lover | Guitar strummer

Hi, I'm Fiona!


I love to program, listen to music and play guitar.


With a background in audio engineering and technical support roles in Audio Visual and IT, I enjoy working as part of a team to troubleshoot issues and solve problems. In these roles I had exposure to development teams and this sparked my curiosity in web development.


I wanted to move into a role where I could combine my troubleshooting and problem solving skills with creativity, and web development checks those boxes for me. I enrolled in the 12 week Web Development Immersive program at General Assembly in March this year, and completed in June.


My favourite parts of web development are working on the functionality and logic of a web application, working with API's and databases. This is because I find it interesting to learn how applications work behind the scenes.


If you have any development opportunities give me a call, or shoot me through an email!
