A Little About Me

Headshot of Shanakay Hall

Hey, my name is Shanakay. I'm a Web Developer and Designer based out of Toronto and I build web applications and websites. I'm trained full stack and love applying my creative and technical skills doing front-end development and design work. I'm a problem solver who's humbly confident and naturally curious. I advocate for diversity and inclusion and a I'm a big CSS fan. Away from the computer I like to travel and explore new places, listen to music and chill out with a good game on my Switch. Oh, I'm also a Photographer.
