a simplified breakdown of my skills across digital media

I’ve bolstered front-end development teams for projects built in, PHP(WordPress,Zend & ModX), Node.js and most recently AppEngine(python) environments. My css precompiler of choice is sass, though I’ve also spent a little time writing LESS. My browser of choice is most definitely Chrome.

In my spare time I try to live an active lifestyle. I like all things in the water (boating, wakeboarding, surfing & SCUBA diving). In summer I’m also partial to playing a spot of club/backyard/indoor cricket.

I like to distance swim, love dribbble’in, cycle-commute and enjoy all sorts of other fitness training.
