Software Developer & Designer

hi@j-d.co 434.806.8534

For over 10 years I've been designing and developing websites. I made my first ever website for a local field hockey club and loved it so much I decided I wanted to do it for a living. I've always liked building, dismantling, and re-building things. My favorite childhood toy was Lego and stayed up past countless bedtimes to work my newest creation. When at university in England, I could quickly see how the web would be a perfect place to use my creative & technical passion. Ever since, I've been immersed in the web and its endless possibilities.

Interests

I'm fascinated with design, typography, interfaces and interaction, gadgets, Internet of things, and technology in general.

Recently, I embarked on a ceramics course and have been learning to throw bowls, mugs and suchlike on a wheel. I'm finding the process thoroughly enjoyable, challenging, but immensely rewarding.

I also enjoy time with my family, hiking in the Blue Ridge, cooking, hanging out with friends, or going for an occasional bike ride.
