I specialise in building user interfaces with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I have been a developer professionally in some capacity for almost 15 years, though I made my first websites in the late 90s. They were terrible, even by the standards of Geocities.

My preference for front end development was founded in being a design hobbyist who used the internet to show off derivative ideas. Across my career I have also worked with Classic ASP, .net, PHP, and SQL in my brief time as an analyst, but building accessible user interfaces for people is where I have settled.

This site uses Next.js to generate static HTML, styled components to author CSS, web components for minimal client JavaScript, and Netlify to build, deploy and host.
