I am a full-stack developer, code teacher and occasional designer based in London. I like to wear as many hats as possible; slipping into whatever role is required to build great stuff for the web.

I currently work at SuperHi, where we are making learning to code easier. At SuperHi, I work on the application, writing lots of JavaScript in Ember (and occasionally some Elixir too).

Alongside working on the app, I also teach in-person courses in London for people who are starting out with learning to code.

Previously I was a front end engineer at Onfido, where I also wrote lots of JavaScript (including React, Ember and Node), CSS and a bit of Ruby (on Rails).

I’m particularly interested in building applications functionally using JavaScript and the real-time web. Using things like Elixir (with Phoenix), websockets, React and RethinkDB.

Teaching front end development at SuperHi

I do things like…

  • Build front-end applications using JavaScript.
  • Design and develop rich user interfaces.
  • Teach code to people who are just starting out.
  • Find user interface pain points and figure how to best tackle them.
  • Think about interface microcopy and its clarity to the user.

I believe…

  • In using the best tools for the job, slipping into whatever role is required to build a great product.
  • Thinking about problems carefully, and then tackling them with concise code that follows best practices.
  • Performance is an instrumental part of a well rounded, quality experience. Snappy interfaces and fast apps delight people, and that’s good for business.
  • As devices get more capable, future proofing is of paramount importance. The bar is now higher than it has ever been, and it’s an exciting time for technology.
