My work

I'm an experienced front end developer, specialising in semantic, accessible code. I've plied my trade for companies like Nature, the BBC, Channel 4, Ogilvy and Mather, the Royal Academy of Music, Gemalto, and many more.

I'm one of the core contributors to the Pa11y accessibility tool.


My site

The current build runs on a Silex (PHP) backend. The design was inspired by Paper Kit. My workflow benefits from Git, SASS, Pa11y, Grunt, and Vagrant with Puppet.

Myself

I write code.

My code is maintainable, accessible, re-usable, and semantic. I work to WCAG guidelines and I believe in strong House Styles and sociable programming.

I ride bikes.

I have several bikes. Do you like bikes? I like bikes. I like riding my bikes. If you like bikes too, we could go for a ride! On our bikes!

I read.

I mostly read non-fiction, maths, pop science, linguistics. I read graphic novels to classics, comedy to tragedy. My favourite poet is Philip Larkin.
