Here's a little context for those of you not familiar with the website or the person.
This site is well over 6yrs old and is high on my list of "tear it down and start again" priorities. The content down below was out of date three years ago and was already old then!
For anyone who IS interested: I'm a front-end specialist who does HTML/CSS/jQuery and has been doing those full-time at various design agencies for the last 6-7 years. I love photography, bouldering, music, and my better half.
Hi, I’m Matt Wilcox, a 27yr old English guy who has
recently moved to Wales, where
I’m finding out what the bachelor life is like; so far I’m loving it!
I’m a relativly easy going guy who also likes to think things through and do things properly. I try to avoid being serious all the time because down that path lies premature old age and a wrinkled forehead. You’re as likely to see me engaged in a serious (but calm) debate as you are to see me bouncing around randomly in Tigger-esque fashion or engaged in an inter-office slow motion imaginary gunfight.
Talking of the office, I work at the brilliant Karova with a bunch of very talented and fun people. I’m the designer. I come up with the look and feel of a website, create the graphics, and then code the XHTML and CSS. I leave it to smarter people (Phil Roche, Aled Davies, Joel Bradbury, Peter Roxburgh, and others) to get all the fancy back-end framework and server shinanigans working.
My culinary prowess extends the whole range of toast dishes, though now I’m living on my own I have ended up eating even more fruit (it’s easy to prepare), and I am slowly expanding my pallete to include none bread related intake. It’s a brave new world.
I love music. I could spend fortunes on new music and it’s a depressing thought to realise that I won’t live long enough to hear all the music the world has to offer. I have a last.fm account if you’d like to see in detail the sort of stuff I listen to. It’s a varied collection. If you download the last.fm player you can listen to some of my most loved tracks (but not all, some artists don’t allow streaming via last.fm yet). I highly recommend last.fm if you’re a music fan. get an account, download the player, and the iTunes/WMP plug-ins. You’ll love it.
I’ve done my best to make this website as accessible as possible for as many people as possible. To learn more visit the accessibility page
