who am i?

I'm Allie Howe, a Computer Science BSc (Hons) graduate from the University of Lincoln, currently working for music tech startup ClicknClear as a Graduate Software Engineer.

Currently I'm enjoying experimenting with lots of areas - for the most part playing with web design using CSS, in addition to creating full-stack web applications & native mobile apps with React.JS & React Native.

You can see all of my open source projects, including this site itself, here.
