Hello! I'm Peter.

I'm a front-end web developer from Melbourne, Australia.

About Me

I have a lifelong passion for technology, both using it and learning how it works, ever since my childhood growing up in the 1990s during the Golden Age of the Internet and the dot.com bubble.

After studying Information Technology & Systems at University, I moved to live and work in Taiwan and Mainland China where I specialized in technology sales and marketing, understanding in great depth how computer hardware functioned while working in the companies that made them.

During this time I not only gained a great deal of knowledge in the frontend, backend and cloud applications that ran on my products, but I also become aware how much more directly relevant the good functionality and usability of applications are in our daily lives compared with the hardware they run on.

I decided to become a web developer as the next logical step in my career journey in order to learn and master front-end development technologies that I can use to directly impact the daily lives of the people around me.

I enjoy building mobile-responsive websites and web applications that not only implement useful and effective functionality but also are clean & well designed, visually appealing and unique.
