    Freelance Web Developer

    As a freelance web developer I have worked with a number of clients on a variety of different projects. Mainly WordPress and React based websites. I have not died of starvation so I consider myself to be a successful freelancer!

    Web Developer

    At Kinsta I am tasked with developing and maintaining the WordPress website. So far there has been lots of work towards modernizing templates and giving non developers more control of the website content, including gradually implementing Gutenberg blocks across the site.

Other Bits & Pieces

Some stuff I enjoy

  • Travel

    I did the digital nomad thing for a couple of years, and hope to go back to being somewhat nomadic in the future

    I built and lived in a van while I did a road trip from Canada to Mexico and back again

  • Cooking

    I enjoy cooking (and eating) new things.

    I even made my own recipe website

  • Making & DIY

    I founded Dundee MakerSpace and I'm now a member of Makespace Madrid, and I've visited a few others on my travels.

    In particular I enjoy making small electronics, home automation, laser cutting and random low quality artwork

  • Indieweb

    I am a supporter of the Indieweb movement and make a bunch of tools in that space.

  • Movies & TV

    A lot of the usual suspects!
