Andrew Wood

Full Stack Web Developer

647-390-4134

Hey!

I’m Andrew, a full stack web developer, located downtown Toronto with a knack for turning ideas and business savvy into living, breathing, products.

I have a good understanding of design, user experience and a relentless attention to detail. All of which will allow us to work together seamlessly. My true skills however, lie within the depths of server hardware and language compilers. I have a true passion for developing products that look and function beautifully.

I enjoy working in creative environments where I can continue to learn and teach. I love to work collaboratively and I'm not shy with communicating my thoughts and ideas where needed. Most of all I enjoy problem solving and meeting the challenges faced.
