Creative Innovator & Accessibility Expert
Hello! I’m Michael, a lifelong learner with a passion for web development and a growing commitment to accessibility. With over 15 years of experience in the ever-evolving world of web technology, I continuously strive to improve my skills and stay current with the latest design trends. I’m on a journey to better understand how people interact with digital content and to make the online world more accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
Embracing Change & Growth
Throughout my career, I’ve had the pleasure of working on websites and landing pages for a wide range of businesses, both large and small. I’ve primarily used WordPress as my go-to platform, but I’ve also explored creating custom content management systems to meet clients’ specific needs. As an early adopter and tech enthusiast, I’m always eager to learn and grow, pushing myself to stay ahead in the ever-changing digital landscape.
An Ongoing Commitment to Accessibility
I firmly believe that everyone should have equal access to the digital world, which is why I’m dedicated to promoting inclusivity in web design. My journey led me to earn my certification from the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) as a Web Accessibility Specialist (WAS). As I continue to develop my skills, my goal is to create websites that cater to everyone, breaking down barriers and promoting understanding.

Giving Back & Learning from the Community
My desire to learn and grow extends to my volunteer and community involvement. I’m a proud Rotarian with Rotary Etobicoke, Chair of the Village of Islington BIA, and a board member for Silver Creek Pre-School, supporting kids with special needs. These experiences have enriched my life and continue to shape my journey as I seek new ways to give back and make a difference.
