I'm from Melbourne, and I build great software.
My focus is on human-computer interaction, usability, and proving to Apple that the web is way cooler than the App Store. Specialising in smart-and-scalable web applications, I've worked with many great Australian brands, including some you may know. I also contribute to Open Source projects.
I like to solve problems with...
- Trunk-Based Dev
- Ruby on Rails
- AWS EC2
- AWS Lambdas
- AWS DynamoDB
- Responsive Design
- RESTful APIs
- OAuth 2.0
- Single Page Apps
- UX Design
- Adobe AEM
- 2D Canvas
