Hanging out at the Melbourne Pen Show all day tomorrow. Hope to see you there! #fountainpens

It’s Thursday night and there’s no new #StarTrek. 🥺 I think I will have to console myself by watching some old Star Trek.

The good news: Tuesday is a public holiday so I have all day to put the finishing touches on my #MelbJS talk. The bad news: I will inevitably spend all day fiddling with my #MelbJS talk instead of taking a day off. #JavaScript #webdev

#macOS Sonoma up to and including 14.1 still has the issue where Privacy & Security permissions sometimes go missing at boot. But a clever reader has written in with a work-around! #Apple

Kicking off work on my MelbJS talk for next week: “Help! Storybook is eating all our tests!” #storybookJs #JavaScript #MelbJS #webdev

Build the Web

Make pixels change colour with code, to create beautiful, accessible experiences.

As Director of Front End Engineering at Culture Amp, I lead a practice of about 50 engineers to build interfaces that help users create a better world of work. After more than 20 years in the field, I continue to learn and explore what is possible on the Web.

Know your tools

Technology is a superpower. Make it work for you.

One of the gifts of a career in software development is the ability to automate away your own problems with custom software. I love to explore the little-known features and extension points in the technology I use, particularly in the Apple ecosystem.
