My name is Stacie DaPonte and I work and live in Toronto, Ontario. I've been making websites since I was a wee lass, and continue to love working in a fast-paced, constantly evolving industry.
I've been working as a Front-End Developer at The Pixel Shop for over 6 years where I build accessible & responsive websites, and maintain meaningful relationships with clients. Starting as an intern, I took on many roles during my time working with a dynamic team of designers, project managers and developers. As part of the customer care team, I'm responsible for conducting in-person or remote training sessions with clients, and handling client care request tickets.
I have recently joined the Program Design team as a Content Developer where I am responsible for auditing and updating our curriculum, and engaging our instructor community.
I also volunteer with Ten Thousand Coffees where I meet up with young professionals looking for advice and mentorship on starting their careers in the tech industry.
In my downtime I am a portrait photographer and model. I also photograph city-wide events like art festivals, political rallies and indoor performances. I have showcased my work with Dirty Talk Entertainment in Kensington Market and with Raw Artists Toronto at the Mod Club.
