Hi There! My name is Mo! I am passionate about integrating design and web-development in accessible and fashionable ways. I like to understand the brand and products from the creation of the wireframe to the deploy of the App. User experience is very important to me which means writing clean and accessible code. With my background in graphic design, I pay close attention to detail and take pride in creating beautiful engaging web experiences.
