Professionally I'm a developer - currently I'm the technical lead at Wonderbly. We make beautiful personalised books - my team looks after the React based website, Prismic CMS and some of the Ruby/Node backend.
Things I'm interested in: love the museum and cultural world and spent a few years as the technical lead at the Royal Academy of Arts. Passionate about education - I have worked in an education focussed startup, ran a coding course for Mum's in Tech and often do talks at General Assembly. Love reading.
I also do quite a bit of sport - mainly lots of running and recently trained to be a yoga teacher.
On tuesdays I help organise Techrunners. We go on weekly jogs around mainly East London and enter the odd race. Come and join us!
On this, my personal website, I tend to build small, visual, fun projects. Most of them work in the browser so are JS heavy with a bunch of funky CSS stuff and a smattering of SVG. For my side projects I enjoy working on entertaining and self contained projects - I get enough big problems to solve at work. This allows me to be fast and loose and a bit hacky. It's done in my free time so is meant to be fun for me. If you enjoy it too so much the better.

Please feel free to contact me - particularly if you are interested in learning to code - I continue to work with organisations that help bring new developers into the industry. I also have some availability for mentoring.
