Leading and mentoring developers has also played an integral role in my career and it's something I approach with passion and joy.
Current technical interests include React, TypeScript, Prisma, GraphQL, Apollo, serverless, testing and headless CMS solutions.
Outside of web development I am passionate about music and cycling. My days as a DJ and radio host might now be done and dusted, but you can follow along with my other two wheeled adventures over on Strava.
Following are a selection of projects that I managed or contributed to during my time working with Prime Motive.
- » MYER.com.au [Next.js, Redux, MUI, React Testing Library, Storybook]
- » Website rebrand [React, MobX, Framer Motion]
These projects are just a taste of my output over the years. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss my previous endeavours in more detail.
