About Me

Before web development I spent many years immersed in the wonderful worlds of academia and Academic publishing. This helped me to develop a keen eye for detail, a passion for simple, accessible communication and an obsession with finding new ways to present information in beautiful and engaging ways. When I’m not coding I'm mainly fooding - (eating, cooking, researching and spending an unhealthy amount of time pinteresting). I travel when I can, read anything and everything and love a good coffee and chat.

My Skills

Having spent years focusing on soft skills in academia and publishing I am thrilled to start adding more hard skills to the fantastic foundation I gained at Hackeryou. I'm happiest in an environment where I have the opportunity to learn new skills and pick up new tricks and tips (and pass them on too!)

Here are a few of the tools I like to use:
