Profile

Award-winning commercial web developer specialising in all aspects of HTML and CSS. Acknowledged in HTML5 for web standards research into the accessibility of data tables and other semantic markup while sponsored by Mozilla Foundation and Google.

I work well with PHP and JavaScript developers but have chosen to specialise in other technologies.

A far-sighted problem avoider, working with initiative in a team or independently. Communicates easily with managers, designers, developers and clients to produce stand-out work.

Contributor to the web accessibility community. Dream job would be long-term sponsorship to resume my HTML5 accessibility research.
