July 2017

Although I've spent most of my working life as a teacher of English as a foreign language, I switched to web development in 2016. It's not quite the big leap that it might sound. With a background in maths, I've always been a nerdy problem-solver, and teaching business people from around the world gave me unique insights into a lot of different industries. I'll admit that changing careers has been a bumpy road, but web development is a job that I love, and I'm here to stay.

In my free time, I love hanging out with my boyfriend and watching all the Star Trek! I also spend more time than I should on personal web development projects, such as my very first browser-based retro game (needs a keyboard, sorry!) and a web-based name generator app for sci-fi and fantasy gamers and writers. Through working with SAND, I'm also getting interested in LGBT+ history and making things better for old and older LGBT+ people.

I hope you enjoy exploring my blog. I started it a few years ago when I began learning web development, and it's been a kind of document of my progress. It's no great work of literature, but I've found it to be a handy way to process and remember what I've learned.

If you're interested in hiring me, collaborating on a project, or just want to reach out, why not drop me a line?
