Hi, I'm Ru. I'm a web developer with an interest in standards, semantics, security, design, DevOps, and UX.
I also like to 🌅 watch sunsets at sea, 🍵 have a warm cuppa to ease into my evenings, and oh - 🎶 add to my playlists on Spotify!
You will often find me working on my site, something I consider an informal participant in the “Small Web.”
The web, in fact, has lost its way. Here's some of the things I'm doing to restore balance:
- 🤓 Participate on the IndieWeb: This enables an independent social web without a huge/cool/new social network sitting in between.
- 🐢 Build for the average user: I'm (slowly) working on a Micropub client for the IndieWeb named Celestial — a CMS of sorts based on open standards.
- 🚪 A safe space to talk: I run a nascent Hometown community named SmallCamp. If you're a friend, just ask for an invite on my Mastodon. We encourage honest tooting, good or bad — away from unethical algorithms and advertisments.
I'm available to work full-time from . I am currently available for part-time (~10-12 hours/week) engagements.
