About me

I got into design at the tender age of 11, when my neopet's homepage just wasn't sparkly enough. I read some tutorials on how to hack HTML tables and never looked back.

In my spare time I listen to books, drink tea, and eat tasty food. In fact, the majority of my life revolves around eating tasty food. You can read my thoughts on audiobooks on Medium, or see my would-be artsy photos on Instagram.
