Hello, I'm Ash.

I like to make things—usually with web technologies, and usually for the web.

At the moment I'm most interested in jamstack and design systems. I work with things like React, Next.js, node.js, and GraphQL. Although there are parts of the stack I'm very focused on, I am most passionate about making stuff.

When I was younger, I was fortunate to discover how simple it can be to publish content online. In the decade or so since, I haven't published very much myself… but I have made a lot of websites for other people.
