Bio

Hello, my name is Danny Barinshtein and I am a creative web designer.

Originially from Whitehorse, Yukon - Canada's great white north, home to the midnight sun, and aurora borealis phenomenon.

I followed my heart to Vancouver and graduated from BCIT with a Senior Management Certificate in New Media Design & Web Development. My passion lies in making the web more engaging day by day, specializing in Responsive, Interactive, and User focused Design and Development.

I am a hard working team player that values work culture and personal space. Bringing 3 years of experience, the confidence, and drive to learn new and exciting technologies I believe that I am a valuable asset to any team, be it a start-up or a corporate giant.
