web development

Some days it feels like I’m a part of a travelling circus, bouncing from one place to another, juggling various roles and responsibilities. I’ve been on the road for just over 13 years now.

It really has been quite some time since I’ve had a permanent online presence, which is a strange thing to say as a web designer right? Plenty has happened in the past 6 years — all of which I’ll try to address in this post — so get comfortable and grab a cup of coffee, this is our catch up call.…
