Hello,
Iโ€™m Ollie.

Some refer to me as a designer who codes,
Others call me a developer with an eye for design.
But let's be real here, I am simply a master of disguise.

My true passion lies in creating tools for small businesses. Because even the smallest business comes with big headaches. And I like to provide the painkiller for that.

Tech Stack

Having come from a design background, I've been comfortably working with HTML & CSS and Javascript for many years. In recent years I've been enjoying Typescript and the tooling that comes with it.

In my day job, I work with Typescript, React, and Vite. Though I've come to enjoy React frameworks like NextJS, for most of my side projects I reach for Svelte Kit.

My origin story began in the WGL, a UK forum for amateur esports. It's where I discovered my passion for design and web technologies, and my gateway to working within the esports industry.

It was here where my passion for design and development was ignited, setting me on the path to where I am today.
