I’m Andrew Hayward, a full-stack web developer with working rights in the UK, the EU (for now!) and the US. For a long time I was based (ish) in London, but now I’m based (ish) in New York. Time (and politics) will see how that works out.

I have been working remotely for several years, currently for Shutterstock, and previously for Etsy and the Mozilla Foundation. I’ve otherwise been gainfully employed on and around the internet since the last century. (Some details, for those who care.)

I’ll notionally be writing about my technical interests here, but writing anything at all seems to be largely beyond me. Just in case it’s not obvious, nothing I do write (technical or otherwise) is necessarily a reflection of my employer’s views, past or present.

This is a WordPress site. I don’t know whether I’m obliged to say something about being proud, but it does the job for now. It’s running a bespoke theme, and the font, where supported, is Ubuntu (with a liberal sprinkling of Font Awesome). You can blame access problems on Cloudflare and/or ServWise.
