Web dev and stuff

Cairns, QLD, Australia Currently employed full time at Precedence as a web/app/webapp developer but if you want to contact me to talk about stuff just shoot me an email

I'm a full stack keyboardicus with a focus on intuitive design, test driven development and task accountability. I have been working fully remote since covid smacked us all for six and I LOVE IT. Maybe I should clarify: I love working remote, not covid, covid sucks.

I use laravel and vue and I build my UI's in storybook, e2e test with cypress, structural test with phpunit and local dev in docker.

I like to think I am good at taking back-of-a-napkin drunken doodlings and turning them into a fully fleshed out scoping document, detailed task list, dependency graph and roadmap, and deliver best practice, rock solid code.
