Hi! I'm a web engineer with more than
10 years experience.
I'm passionate about creating beautiful user interfaces which rigorously conform to web standards.
I care a lot about user experience and making the web accessible for everyone.

Why you should work with me
Design with Purpose
By working together we can design something which makes sense for your specific audience.
We can also work from your existing designs and, if necessary, iterate on them to create something fully responsive and accessible.
From design to code, I consider accessibility very important. By following Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), your website will be easy to understand and navigate for all types of users.
Taking a mobile-first approach, your website will work seamlessly between different devices and viewports.
Being bespoke, your website won't be weighed down by features that you don't need.
Tools such as Google's Lighthouse will be used to measure how quickly your website takes to load.
More about me
I've always been excited and inspired by the possibilities of the web and the reach it has. At this point I honestly can't imagine doing anything else.
I specialise in front end development, paying particular attention to user experience, accessibility, semantics, component API design, and authoring CSS at scale.
Working for Neontribe, I've been able to work on a multitude of social good projects as well as a couple of larger corporate ones, each with a unique set of challenges.
