I'm Alex, a design engineer in London, currently working at Lystable. As a design engineer, I help close the gaps between design and code, whether this be through writing code, or by creating processes and tooling to assist other developers.

Although I spend most of my day working with the front-end and design, I always enjoy playing around with server-side tech. But most of all, I enjoy making tools. You can find me on , , , and .
