Richard is a full-stack developer, specializing in Python and Django for the past 15 years. He started as a freelancer in 2004 and has been a team lead and CTO at a UK-based Django agency. He enjoys working on open-source projects and maintains several interesting libraries.
Richard lives in the UK with his wife and two children. He is an enthusiastic carpenter and maker, but sadly his skills rarely meet his ambitions. He achieved good grades in violin and piano at school, and after a long break has taken both up again - but much practice is required before his next performance. His other passion is traveling, having visited over 20 countries, although a young family means most adventures these days are near his home in the Cotwolds.
