Rollerblading was my life as a teenager and well into my 20s but I've always felt it is underappreciated as an activity.
During the pandemic, I had some time on my hands so I decided to design, develop and release something to give some back to the sport I love.
Blade is a progressive web app where 1-4 players can challenge each other to a game of SKATE.
At CaterCow we decided to use Vue.js (server-rendered via Nuxt.js) for our frontend applications due to its simple API, maturity and HTML template syntax - which was far more familiar to the rest of the team (Rails developers).
I had never written any Vue before but I've grown to feel really productive working with it. How did I get up to speed? Write a to-do app of course 😝.
So it turns out moving your life three and half thousand miles across the Atlantic is stressful. Who'd have known? I've started getting into meditation as a way to stay sane and chill out.
Breathe is a progressive web app that helps with mindful breathing by focusing your attention on a peaceful, animated scene. I build and deployed the whole thing via CodeSanbox - how cool is that!
London is a big city. When I plan to meet my friends they inevitably suggest a "great place" conveniently located down the street from their house/work that would take me an hour to get to.
Meet in the Middle is a progressive web app that suggests the best spots that everyone can get to without losing the will to live 😝.
I live in the UK - knowing if you are going to get wet is important, knowing the atmospheric pressure is not.
I designed and built this super simple weather app to quickly show me the things I care about and nothing else (and to learn the new React Context API).
I have this weird thing where I listen to white noise when concentrating on code reviews or when I'm stuck trying to understand how generators work for the tenth time. Also, I like to loop tracks with a driving beat when I'm "in the flow", programming.
I had been looking to check out Electron for some time and needed an idea for an app to build, hence how my strange listening habits became a simple menu bar music player.
Squirrel is an awesome FinTech startup that helps people manage their money. I was the second hire on the development team and led frontend development and UI design, working super closely with the product team.
At Squirrel I thrived in an environment where interaction with users was a daily activity, be that through interviews, prototype testing sessions or helping out on customer support.
