I care a lot about user experience and making the web accessible for everyone.

Why you should work with me

  • WordPress
  • React
  • Gatsby JS
  • Next JS
  • Easily Manage Content with WordPress

    Your theme will be developed from scratch and completely bespoke to your needs, no pre-made themes.

    Depending on your needs, WordPress may be used alongside a React-based JavaScript frontend.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Responsive

    Taking a mobile-first approach, your website will work seamlessly between different devices and viewports.

  • Performance

    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.

I've worked with a lot of programming languages over the years but feel most at home with JavaScript and React, which continue to evolve and excite me.
