I'm Alan Shortis—a front end developer based in
London , currently working for Monzo.
I like building scalable, accessible, and performant design systems and websites; the combination of code, design, and empathy for end users is what makes me want to do my best work.
I am primarily working on internal tooling that helps keep Monzo secure. Outside of work I like design, photography, music, and cycling, with my enthusiasum far outweighing my ability.
- Listening to Clark, Pink Floyd, and Frank Zappa
- Reading The Monocle Companion: Fifty Ideas for a Better World by Monocle, and How They Broke Britain by James O'Brien
- Watching Atlanta
- Struggling with colour theory, and trying to squeeze the right tones from film
- Starting the long process of learning Go, so I can diversify my career
