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 sometime and needed an idea for an app to build, hence how my strange listening habits became a simple menu bar music player.
Squirrel is a really awesome FinTech startup that helps people manage their money. I was 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.
