Tristan Brookes Front-end Developer

Profile

I'm a front-end developer / web designer. I've been making websites for over 7 years now as a freelancer and at agencies/startups.

I enjoy using responsive technologies and the latest front-end innovations to build websites. Asides from loving my career path I enjoy spending time with my pet guinea pigs, sipping a nice cup of Twinings Everyday and playing games with my friends.
