I’m Jay, a software engineer living and working in East London. I’m currently helping to build digital products & services at Red Badger.
Despite it originally being my escape hatch, I absolutely love what I do. I’m passionate about everything from typography and design systems through to static typing and functional programming. When I’m not drowning in YAML, I enjoy complaining about build tools and exploring new languages, frameworks and design patterns.
Whilst I wouldn’t consider myself a contrarian so much as a part-time troll, I genuinely believe that the C in CSS is a good thing, that PHP really did ‘get good’, and that micro-services are more of a cargo-cult than an architectural choice. I also unironically loved Batman vs. Superman.
Now you know everything.
