I'm a passionate developer

It was almost four years ago now that I was introduced to web development by my brother. Since then I have been primarily working in React and taking in everything I can.

I am an avid podcast listener where I stay up to date with new and upcoming technologies. I get delighted by the developer experience provided by tools such as GraphQL Codegen and am excited at the prospect of the rise of Svelte as a dominant player in the front end world.

It’s an exciting time to be a developer and I look forward to the oppurtunities ahead and the products that have yet to be built.

What I'm Currently Working OnDesigner Front End Developer

Showdown is tournament management software for sports designed to help streamline the planning and management of tournaments for those who are less knowledgeable.

It was born out of a desire for me and my brother to learn new skills and work together to build something tangible that can be used by others in the future.
