Bio

I’m a seasoned front-end developer, and built my first site in 1997, back when marquee was high-tech, and nested tables were all the rage. Since then I’ve dabbled as a UX researcher and interaction designer, but my core love is for working with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and all the peripheral elements of the web. Open source stacks are a great environment to work within, and Ruby (Rails, Middleman) is no exception. I moved to Wellington 5 years ago, after attending Webstock 2014, and now work at Flick Electric Co. Here I helped implement Flick’s first Design System alongside some great people like Sophie Price, and Kah Chan.
