Crystal UI

About

My experience spans across web development, mobile apps, design, animation, games and beyond. I have a focus on Sass and JavaScript frameworks but am varied in what I enjoy working with. I’m interested in languages, origami, music. A teacher, but also life-long learner. If you‘d like to get in touch, you can send me an email.

I write random stuff on Twitter. My CV is on LinkedIn.

Sometimes I make things on CodePen or GitHub.
