Marketplace

About me

I've been working in web development since 2004, back when all this was just fields and we had to use a whole manner of nasty hacks to get our CSS working.

In that time I have worked on a wide range of projects, from small brochure-ware microsites through to enterprise-level single-page web apps serving millions of users

I am passionate about web accessibility and how to build for assistive technologies. I'm also a big fan of test-driven development, clean code, and striving for simple solutions to complex problems.
