Speaker Bio:

I am a Senior Accessibility Engineer and W3C Invited Expert. I've been a developer/programmer for over forty years from when I started with BASIC and Scheme, and now with React and JavaScript. My focus is on Accessibility and I have worked in accessibility for the past twenty-three years. It is very important to me and I do advocate for accessibility. I host a podcast, the Front End Nerdery Podcast, and stream on Twitch. I have written articles for publication for Smashing Magazine, Dev.to, and CSS-Tricks. Originally from Portland, Maine and now living in Phoenix, Arizona, I love food and cooking, especially lobster and lobster rolls, and found the best lobster roll spot in Arizona of all places.
