A little bit about me
What do I do when I’m not cutting code?
I’m either chillin’ at home (with my wife, my son, and our two cats) watching TV, cooking, or renovating our house. Otherwise I’m with friends or visiting family.
What’s filling up my inbox?
I enjoy reading some of the amazing designs coming though in newsletters that I’ve subscribed to (including Web Designer Depot and Smashing Magazine).
What’s playing through my headphones?
I’m a rock fan at heart, but there are often gems from other genres that I enjoy. Main favourites are Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Queens of the Stone age, Rage Against The Machine, Shihad, The White Stripes – (you see the trend).
Here’s a few that are worth a listen
I also frequently listen to a series of Podcasts. Here are a few examples that I highly recommend.
Star Talk Radio
What do I see at the cinemas?
Generally action, sci-fi or comedy movies. Or movies that are a combination of the above.
Not to name-drop or anything, but Firefly cinemas are an awesome way to see some great classics if you’re in my area (if you’re not, find a drive in cinema near you!).
