Hi, I'm Jade.
I am a front-end engineer.
Currently based in London, UK.
I studied Computer Science at Trinity College Dublin and am now based in London building customer facing and internal digital products for companies like Urban Outfitters, ASOS, Harrods, and MADE.COM.
Tech icons such as Steve Jobs conquered decision fatigue by wearing the same outfit every day. I like clothes, so my particular brand of decision fatigue is deciding which episode of Gilmore Girls to watch for the hundredth time. This simple React app queries The Movie DB and solves my greatest inefficiency by randomly choosing an episode from my expertly curated list of bingeable shows, saving me precious time to choose my outfits in the morning. Now to choose an appropriate snack pairing...
Worked alongside NYC based graphic designer to bring her portfolio website vision to life because I wanted to play around with Gatsby.js and GraphQL. Tara also happens to be my sister, and paid me with an Impossible Burger and frozen spicy cucumber margaritas.

Tara wanted to be able to control the alignment and height (in relation to the user's viewport) for each image in her portfolio. I used Contentful as a Headless CMS, providing her with custom dropdowns for alignment and size, so that she wouldn't have to touch any code to fine-tune the look of her website on-the-go.
