Hey! I'm a full-stack web developer with over five years’ experience, and a track record of producing innovative and effective solutions in both enterprise and consumer markets. I have experience working independently and as part of a disciplinarily and culturally diverse team, and through this range of experience have developed key project management and strategic planning abilities.
...is the blurb at the top of my CV. I'm also a keen traveller, creator of things and learner of languages. I'm mostly pretty average at the things I do, but my breadth of interests and skills means I can get on with just about anyone, and turn an idea into a business, with a product. That's what I spend my days doing, and I like it quite a bit.
