Hi, I'm a web developer with a speciality in WordPress.
I've been in the industry over 4 years, spending the majority working in an agency environment.
In this time I have worked on over 50 projects, doing build or ongoing support.
These sites have varied widely in industry, technologies, size, and complexity.

Under the hood

This site facilitates two purposes, a place to provide information and secondly to try out new things. So in the spirit of trying new things this site is built using React, with the React Starter Kit as a starting point. This site also uses Foundation 6 with Flex support, and hosted on a free Heroku plan.

Soon to be implemented is to serve the content via a headless/decoupled WordPress installation.

List of software used on the site.
//TODO: Not use an image.


In order to keep things short and sweet, i'm going for a listed approach of things i'm experienced in.
I like to call it buzzword bingo. I've omitted the standard, MySQL, PHP, HTML, CSS, ect.
