Jon Ashcroft


Hey! I’m Jon, a web developer from Birmingham, UK. I started getting into making websites as a hobby around 2006, but only started to pursue it seriously as a career in 2014 after taking some time to figure out what I really wanted from life.

I’m currently working for a great agency in Birmingham, and have the privilege to work on some pretty incredible projects & clients. I do genuinely love the world of web development and every day is a positive learning experience.

I consider myself a creative & curious person: Whether it’s finding new music, discovering great places to eat, taking photos, playing with APIs, learning something new – I want to do it all.

I’m trying to be more active on my blog because I want to give back to the community that has taught me so much – this also extends to being more active on GitHub.

What I’m doing now:

🖥  Working web development full time
☕  Drinking far too much coffee
👨‍💻  Learning to master React
🏃  Started running again, aiming to beat PB’s
🤩  Motivating myself to start a secret side-project
📍  Living in Birmingham City Centre
👟  Deciding which trainers to buy next
☀️ Saving for Miami and Cuba in 2019
