About

I like to build things. I am passionate about all aspects of technology, from designing beautiful user interfaces, to writing DRY code.

Although I work full-time as a UI Designer and Front-End Developer, I enjoy learning about other parts of technology. I built a custom watchface and an app for the Pebble smartwatch, and have built some web apps.

In my time designing and building websites for clients, I have had a lot of positive feedback.

Ire is truly an absolute joy to work with. Professional and patient, she works quickly and efficiently, and only produces work that is aesthetically pleasing, well designed, and to her client’s liking. A million thanks to Ire for all that she’s done! Isabelle Edwards, Signed Isabelle

Nowadays, I work full-time with Big Cabal Media, a company creating online content for Africans.

You can find me sharing my projects on github, interesting links on twitter, or random thoughts on medium.
