Code. Food. Politics. Jesus. Technology. Not necessarily in that order.

Summary

I am a skilled and seasoned web development professional with a broad range of skills across project & client management, front-end & back-end development, design tools, and video and audio production. I have delivered multiple projects for a range of businesses and utilise technology to bring visions and designs to life.
