Web developer & writer

Curriculum Vitae

I am a web developer with 20+ years experience. I love to code, to design, and to build web sites and apps that are useful and beneficial.

I initiate and enable new projects, and improve existing ones.

I am an advocate of responsible web development - building high performance websites that are sustainable, accessible and fast. As a core contributor on the open source project ResponsibleTech.Work, I work on practices and tools to improve decision making and promote thoughtful programming and design.

At The Public Good I write articles on the climate crisis and responsible web development.

At Venga Vamos I imagine, design and build web apps.
