About me

An industrious and adaptable designer-developer-tinkerer, with a keen eye for detail and a passion for problem solving.

I have a solid background in design, and a technical head too. I’m open to projects ranging from UX/UI design to a full developmental build of a site from spec, when you’re in need of a front-end developer with a designer’s eye.

I’m a big advocate of prototyping and designing in the browser - I’m intrigued by the intersection of design and engineering and I’m always striving to bridge that gap between disciplines.
