About

I'm a big fan of regex; one of the most under-used and mis-used tools programmers have.

I'm a web developer, experienced with CFML, HTML, CSS and JS.

I'm an amateur photographer; I both capture pure photos and create manipulated images.

I'm an advocate of usability, creating tools that empower all humans.


JS (Javascript) is a programming language used for adding interactivity to a web page, and to generally improve the experience by overcoming certain limitations of the underlying techologies.

It can also be used to do pointless and annoying crap.

Recently, many web developers have realised some of the things JS is capable of, and started to take the language more seriously, resulting in it also being used as a general purpose programming language outside of the browser.
