Front end developer

I'm a front end developer specialising in data-visualisation and graphics. I've worked extensively with HTML, CSS and JavaScript to build beautiful responsive websites. I’m a big fan of D3.js and I enjoy experimenting with canvas, social media APIs and physical tech. I’m quick to pick up new languages, libraries and technologies. I'm interested in combining technology with fiction, current affairs, maths, music and more…
