I'm passionate about creating interactive content for the Web; whether it's the HTML and CSS front-end or server side development with PHP, I am confident in my abilities to deliver user-friendly, accessible websites.
Much of what I know has been self-taught; reading books such as Hardboiled Web Design by Andy Clarke and Handcrafted CSS by Dan Cederholm has given me a solid foundation in learning about techniques such as progressive enrichment; the process of "rewarding" newer browsers with advanced CSS properties such as drop shadows or multiple backgrounds, whilst still having a fallback style so that it looks acceptable in browsers such as Internet Explorer 6; how to write clean, semantic HTML as a basis for this styling, and for the benefit of search engines and screen readers; and how to design simple, good looking websites.
When not indulged in creating websites I'm an avid gamer, beer nerd and cook. Cheers!
Games Uncovered is a game review site that was built with a strong focus on aesthetics and writing quality; it attracted a keen following, and helped me establish contacts within the gaming industry. It has led to writing partnerships with sites such as 148apps and has been one of my most successful projects to date.
