I love reading, ballroom dancing, heraldry, and playing the flute.

I live and work in Auckland, New Zealand.
I have worked as a freelance web developer since 2012. I specialise in WordPress because it is very easy for clients to maintain the website after it has been set up. From the developer's point of view it is a very flexible CMS, and its open-source nature means there is a large community providing themes, plugins and support.
Prior to my becoming a web developer I obtained a PhD in particle physics and spent four years conducting post-doctoral research at the Large Hadron Collider on a very different sort of CMS – the Compact Muon Solenoid.
