Curriculum Vitae

A colleague once described me as a true "Unicorn" developer - I promised myself that I wouldn't publicize this, but it's too good to gloss over - I think my strength comes from being a generalist - one day I could be using Terraform, the next designing something in Sketch or debugging some Rails code.

Over the years I have worked with a variety of technologies, starting back in the early 2010s where I worked as a C# / ASP.NET developer, through to playing around with Node.js, and then subsequently falling in love with Ruby and Rails. More recently, I have found TypeScript to be a delight, so I tend to work with this for most new frontend projects.
