I'm a front-end software developer, mainly using Javascript for building products. I also use a lot of Node.js for developing the back-end of projects. The main technologies I use are React.js (although for my job I use Angular), and React's associated ecosystem, and TypeScript. I'm a big fan of writing simple, functional code and using Unix's philosophy of small, modular, composable code to create microservices that do one thing well.

Outside work, I enjoy playing Nintendo games on the DS/3DS, Wii and Gameboy. I'd love to own a N64 at some point. I also enjoy running (I use the Nike+ Run Club app - I can't figure out how to share a link to my profile, but search and add me!). I collect Beano and Dandy comics, annuals and merchandise (my collection of Beano annauls goes back to the 1960s, with a few from the 50s too). I'll get a good picture of my collection soon to put on here.

I live in West London (Uxbridge, so not really London) and currently work in Reading. In the future, I'd love to be a part of a small social-good startup who are striving to make significant differences to people's lives. I graduated from Brunel University London in July 2017 with 2:1 in Computer Science. I try to keep up with tech news, especially anything to do with Apple - The Verge, Daring Fireball, 9to5mac, Engadget and Ars Technica are my go-to publications to catchup on the latest and greatest gadgets and technology. I also read the articles posted on Hacker News. Finally, I enjoy watching football and support Manchester United!
