About me and my work

I work on making the web a better place through designing and developing performance optimised websites coded with semantic, accessible HTML and modular CSS and JavaScript. For more detailed information about my approach, experience and work history view my cv.

I'm a European with dual nationality: holding both British and Irish citizenship.

Some of the things I enjoy beyond my work include road cycling, visiting museums and travelling the world.

Previously

Before transitioning into the web industry I studied for four years at Brunel University London: completing a BSc in Multimedia Technology & Design. During that time I also did a work placement at Film Education in Soho, London. There I designed and developed educational microsites for clients including Warner Brothers, Pathé International and CinemaNX.

For my Final Year Project I researched and developed a mobile application for use in museums and art galleries named Culturebook. As part of this research I liaised with a number of museums including the Ashmolean, Oxford.

Seen me at an event recently?

I actively support and engage in the web community through regularly attending conferences and meetups that improve my awareness of new front-end technologies, web standards, accessibility and better approaches to user experience design.

I organise a regular website club in London called Homebrew Website Club and participate in other IndieWeb events. Giving back to the web community is important to me which is why I devote some of my free time for coaching others to code and learn to solve problems. I go to Codebar on a regular basis to teach HTML, CSS and Javascript skills.

Speaking and publications

From time to time I do public speaking at events and publish posts about topics related to user experience and the web here on my blog. I've given talks previously at events including London Web Standards , Front-end London, UX Brighton and Internet Explorers Kent.
