I'm Chris. I'm a Senior Frontend Engineer at Jane. I also am a part time instructor at Georgian College in Ontario Canada. I've been dabbling in development since the age of 12, but have professionally been developing for 6 years.

Over the last several years, I've worked both as a full stack developer primarily in the Javascript ecosystem and have extensive experience with technologies such as React. I also over the last couple years have been responsible for assisting in the hiring process by reviewing resumes, interviewing candidates, and negotiating salaries.

I have grown tremendously over the last several years, and am looking for a mentee who is looking to do the same. Some examples of a growth mindset could be but not limited to:
- Getting a new job/first job
- Looking to get a raise
- Looking to get a promotion
- Finding new technologies to use
- Reviewing code/improving best practices

If I sound like the kind of mentor you're looking for, don't shy away from messaging me.
