I’m passionate about accessibility and web standards. The technology exists to provide rich web communications which remain accessible to all people… I believe the web industry needs create sites for users, not in spite of them. I also believe the web industry is maturing, with professional organisations to support workers; and rigorous development processes becoming the norm for web teams everywhere.

I currently work as the Interface Architect for Ansarada (Sydney, Australia).
