Front end developer. Lover of human-centered design. Diversity advocate.

About

I'm a junior designer/developer currently based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, though I'm also available remotely.

Born in Sydney, I went to university in Scotland to study history and politics. It was only during my Masters year that I realised my passion for coding, and I was lucky enough to get my start through Code First: Girls.

Day-to-day, I turn coffee into TV apps at BT. Outside of the 9-5, I build small apps, blogs and websites using HTML, CSS, JavaScript.

I'm all about about human-centered design and user experience. So if you want to build an app your mum can use, let's have a chat.

Away from the computer, I am hugely passionate about seeing more diversity in tech spaces. Only 4% of software developers in the UK identify as female, and I'm keen to get involved in making that a much larger number. I am currently working with BT to improve their graduate and apprenticeship recruitment processes.
