You can usually find me on Twitter. And you can sometimes find me at web development conferences, where I might be talking about development techniques. I blog here less frequently than I'd like, but manage it a little more often on the Netlify blog.

Wherever you find me, online or in the real world, please do come and say a friendly hello.

Cleverly explaining concepts with a cup of tea in hand and a smile on the face. Brilliant.
