oh hai, I'm Thom!
I am a senior technologist at Havas Lynx Group↗.
I have been making things for the web for more than 11 years. I am an enthusiastic code janitor↗ and a proud 1x engineer↗.
I love to build websites that work for everyone; I put a lot of focus on accessibility and performance.
The Sherlock Holmes of code
When I'm not building things for the internet, I take photos of stuff.
I am a Gen-X/Millennial cusp (Xennial↗) — old enough to remember life before the internet but not (quite) old enough to have seen Nirvana live.
I am not the "Black Barber" of Llanelly↗, the Head of Financial Crime Prevention↗, or the high sheriff of Lancashire↗.
I have been reading a lot of books about "urban fantasy"↗ lately. I'm currently reading The Absolute Book by Elizabeth Knox. See everything I've been reading recently on BookWyrm↗.
I have also enjoyed reading Wednesday, June 7, 2023 at 10:59 PM Mountain Daylight Time↗ by Stillness.Digital | A Place To Rest and What I Learnt Making A Teeny-Tiny 1kB Webpage↗ by Henry Leach online.
I've been listening to a lot of Christine and the Queens↗ and Avatar↗ this week. I've been slightly obsessed with Ghost of Me↗ by Make Them Suffer↗. You can see all my recent music on last.fm↗.
Recently, I've been watching Love Island↗ and I'm hoping to start We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)↗ soon. You can find my entire watchlist on Trakt.tv↗.
If you would like to talk to me about websites, books, killing plants, food, photography, food photography, music, having cats, or anything else; you can mostly find me hanging around here on the interwebs.
If you would like to talk about me, you can use he/him/his↗ pronouns. If you want or need to know how to pronounce my name - How to Pronounce↗ has got your back!
