A Frontend Developer from New York
<Who I Am/>
Hey! I'm Alana, a Frontend Developer from Long Island, New York. I proudly hold a B.S. in Computer Science from St. Joseph's College, complemented by a minor in Digital Design. My academic journey has equipped me with a deep understanding of the technicalities behind design, allowing me to precisely lay out design elements. This, combined with my digital design background, empowers me to grasp the intricate balance of the "how" and "why" that crafts a memorable user experience.
Professionally, I've navigated the realms of E-Commerce and marketing, gaining a multifaceted understanding of user behavior and preferences. On the side, my freelance projects span a variety of industries, enriching my perspective and enhancing my knack for crafting tailored solutions. It's not just about codes and designs for me; it's about creating experiences that resonate with users.
Outside of work, I'm all about music, tennis, beauty, dogs, and the vastness of space. 🎵🎾💄🐶🌌
I'm driven by growth, always on the lookout for new challenges and innovative solutions. With my unique perspective and dedication, I believe I can bring a fresh approach to any team. If you've got an exciting project in mind or just want to chat, I'm here for it!
