About

Hi, I'm Jacob. I'm a front end web developer based in London, UK.

I love designing websites and making them look good. If I'm not building something for a client, I'm coding for fun and learning new technologies.

I know HTML, CSS and JavaScript (ES6). I have a basic knowledge of React, and have built a few simple projects with this framework. Other technologies I've used include jQuery, SCSS, GSAP, and Bootstrap. I'm always excited about learning new languages; I'm currently learning PHP and MySQL.

My interests are multi-faceted; graphic design, web design, and animation occupy most of my spare time. When I'm away from the desktop you'll most likely find me playing chess, tennis, cycling in the great outdoors, or reading sci-fi novels.
