I think I said most of what you’d want to know about me on the homepage, apart from that I have magnets in my fingers, and a really cute miniature schnauzer called Huxley.

Health status

In January 2022 I caught COVID-19 and have been experiencing significant long-term effects since, including severe fatigue and issues with visual processing. Apologies if I’m slow to respond to emails or DMs, extended use of screens is hard for me but I’ll try to get to everything eventually, send me a nudge if it’s urgent. I’m not currently accepting any engagements involving travel. More details on my long COVID journey can be found on my YouTube channel.

Sometimes I talk about code and creativity at panels, meetups and conferences. If you’re interested in having me speak at your event, email me
