Hi! Iā€™m Danny šŸ‘‹

I'm a Full-Stack Web Developer and Writer.

If you're looking to learn about UI design, algorithms, and freelancing, you're in the right place!

About me

I am a freelance web developer who also loves to write articles, learn new technologies and build projects on the side.

I've taught myself many technologies over the last few years, and have built numerous projects from this Gatsby blog to a React Native meditation app. It's been lots of fun!

I have a masters degree in mechanical with biomedical engineering so logical scientific thinking is what I love to do. I'm currently studying algorithms and data structures in JavaScript, and delving deeper into React with TypeScript.
