Hello! I'm Amber Lahav.

Front-end developer, endlessly new things.

About Me

My name is Amber and I'm a web developer based in the Greater Toronto Area. I recently graduated from HackerYou's immersive web development program, where I gained valuable skills in front-end development, as well as the ability to push myself and learn new things quickly. Before that, I graduated from Ryerson University's Graphic Communications Management program with a minor in e-Commerce.

I love to be creative and solve challenges. I strive to develop and design products with user experience, clean code and accessibility standards in mind. Besides coding and designing, I am really into photography, baking, and travelling to new places.
