Who am I?

I'm a front end developer currently based in Cardiff. I have a passion for building websites that are accessible and fast - while giving the best possible experience to the user, however they choose to view the site.

I write code which is clean, reusable, and importantly: maintainable

Curious and persistent by nature, I'm constantly learning and expanding my skills as a developer.

I love what I do.
