Hello, my name is Raphael. I'm a designer and developer living in London.

I started on this weird and wonderful journey into web design and front-end development back in the summer of 2004, but my experience goes back even further than that. It’s a funny story actually — I’ll write about it one day, I’m sure.

Over the past several years, I’ve built structurally sound websites and web applications for a variety of companies and startups. You can take a look at my most recent work here.

In addition to writing rock-solid code, I have an unhealthy passion for video games and the culture enveloping it. When I’m not knee-deep in markup, I occasionally write game reviews for Bit Thirsty, a blog run by myself and a few other super-passionate video game folk.

I’ve been very fortunate to find something that I love to do. The ever-evolving web is something that’s fascinated me from its humble beginnings and it’s something I can truly say that over the years I’ve fallen head over heels for. It’s not without its head-pounding moments, like all jobs; but bending the web to do what you want it to do is more satisfying than it sounds.

If you would like me to advise you on your project or think we could work together, please feel free to get in touch via email.
