At heart, I am a story-teller.
For almost a decade I practiced journalism, writing daily news for papers and the BBC. It is a fantastic skill, especially when one hunts the perfect line to capture readers’ attention. And one writes and re-writes and re-writes until something happens and the real story is told effectively.
I always loved that. And for me, the way they look, the way those stories were presented, printed or coded, was also crucial to convey all the right meanings and truths.
Learning and crafting HTML/CSS/JS documents to present content I was producing was a conscious choice and a privilege.
I now develop other people’s stories, and other companies’ stories on the web. Being a good listener helps to capture those messages. It’s my craft and my passion. And every line of code I write serves that purpose.
