What I Do #
I'm a front-end web developer and designer from London, UK. I run a small, customer-focused web design and development studio in Barcelona, Spain. I work remotely with clients from all over Europe and North America.
I specialise in building fast and scalable, API-driven websites and Headless e-commerce applications using Jamstack or microservices-style architecture. I help clients to optimise their website and product performance, remove redundancy, streamline processes, and basically to boost their bottom line.
Core Skills #
I am highly adaptable to any project and a fast learner, but my core competences are as follows:-
- Concept & Consulting
- Product UI/UX Design
- Web Application Development
- Jamstack / Headless / Composable
- CMS (Content Management Systems)
- Serverless & Edge Computing
- API Design & Development
- CI/CD Workflows
- E-Commerce & Payments

Technology & Tools #
I use a pretty extensive set of technologies and tools in my day-to-day work. Here is pretty much what I currently use:-
- NodeJS, Express, Deno

I have nearly two decades of experience building for the web, working with clients large and small from a wide range of industries. I contribute to several open source projects related to the Jamstack and I am the maintainer of a number of popular starter projects for use with Eleventy and Jekyll static site generators.
Feel free to take a look at my GitHub profile.
Education & Background #
My academic and professional background is in photography and digital imaging. I studied at University of the Arts London (London College of Communication) and went on to work in editorial photography in London for several years, primarily as a first assistant and then as a photographer in my own right.
Later, after years of learning and building websites in my spare time, I started my first web development agency and never looked back.
I'm a dual British/Polish citizen living and working these days between Barcelona, Spain and the French Pyrenees, where I do a lot of cycling, bikepacking, and running. More about that another time...
As well as being a native English speaker, I speak Catalan, Spanish, and a bit of French.
