Talk: Building Figma’s Widget Code Generator
I am a Software Engineer at Figma, hailing from Leeds in the UK. I have always worked full stack but there is a special place in my heart for anything visual, which has lead me to my role on the Developer Tools team at Figma. What excites me about technology is being able to rapidly iterate on things and work with the smartest people around to build cool stuff! In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my cat, oil painting and getting out into the countryside on my own two feet.
