Since creating my first web page in 1998 I have been studying programming and working in the digital industry.
Over the course of my career I have created many simple and complex web applications, desktop applications, e-commerce websites, implemented over the wire protocols and designed binary file formats.
I believe very strongly in using the right tool for the job and carefully evaluate the most appropriate technology stack for each project.
Operating solo or leading small to medium-sized teams of engineers is a walk in the park. I have led teams of 12+ engineers on multi-million dollar projects and guided junior engineers in small agile teams.
I evangelize a document, test, code and iterate workflow to create robust and maintainable software.
I guess I am a bit of an old-timer because I can wax lyrical about arcane and obsolete technology like Director, Dreamweaver and Flash. I could talk about creating drag and drop interfaces in Netscape 4 (DHTML!) or vector drawing applications in Flash 5.
I was creating database-driven web applications years before the term full-stack became mainstream and working remotely from around the globe before the words digital nomad had been uttered.
I cut my teeth in several digital agencies before going it alone and working as a consultant in London for many years before pioneering the digital nomad lifestyle and then finally settling in the Island of the Gods – Bali, Indonesia.
Like nearly all of my work this website is open-source, feel free to browse the code or fork the project but please make the style your own if you do! If you hit a bug raise an issue so that I can continue to learn and improve.
