About

Hi, I'm Lucas! I’m on a mission to build websites and applications that can be enjoyed on any modern device and by any user, one line of code at a time!

My specialties include:

  • Pixel-perfect design conversion from Photoshop, Sketch, PDF, or other formats into fully-functional user experiences
  • Conducting web accessibility reviews and implementing improvements to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
  • Combining technical skills with bilingual (French) customer service experience to resolve web product issues for clients and users

I recently graduated from web development bootcamp at Juno College, prior to which I earned a Master’s degree in sociocultural anthropology from the University of Toronto. My background in anthropology aligns perfectly with my interest in UX design; I love learning about people in order to make their lives easier!

I also have considerable experience working in sales and customer service, where I honed skills such as client management, troubleshooting technical problems, updating content management systems, and training new teammates.
