About me and my work

standing at a lecturn looking at a microphone.

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. Supporting this approach I embrace the practices of user-centric design to better inform the process in making websites through comprehensive user research and usability testing.

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.
