About me

Though originally born in Auckland, New Zealand, I now live in a village called Wargrave, Berkshire, UK. Just an hour outside of London.

I am currently the Technical Lead (UI) for Avis Budget Group after heading up the front-end development team of a medium-sized digital agency for many years.

I have worked with a variety of technologies and clients, allowing me to bring my core values of quality code and beautiful user experiences to their brands.

I love to take every opportunity to discuss with enthusiastic web designers & developers; HTML, CSS, JavaScript, archictecture, standards, usibility and processes within the industry.

If you think I would fit an event or conference you are organising, let’s talk.
