Hi there, my name's Jack Lyons. I'm an expert Front End Developer from Gold Coast, Australia 🇦🇺. My preferred tech stack includes Vue.js or React.js on the front end coupled with Node.js on the back end. I enjoy working on responsive, mobile-first websites, web app's and SaaS products.

When I'm not coding you can usually find me outdoors rock climbing, travelling the world, digital nomadding from cafes and coworking spaces or attending dev meetups. I also write rock climbing and travel articles on my other blog called Adventureinmyveins. It's an adventure publication crafted for rock climbers and mountain lovers who want to travel the world & build a location independent lifestyle.

My background is in Urban Planning and I have a degree from the University of Queensland. I have also studied abroad in Austria 🇦🇹, where I learnt German and studied Environmental Sustainability at the Karl-Franzens-Universität in Graz. It was there at university where I also met my wife Zoe @wildblend.

While I don't work as an urban planner anymore, I am still deeply interested in the emerging wave of "urban tech" and "smart city" startups around the world. I would love to one day merge my passion for web and software development to solve the challenges of our modern built and natural environment. If you are looking for a front end developer for your urban tech startup, then please let me know!

Currently I am living on the Gold Coast, after travelling the USA 🇺🇸 for 12 months in 2019. During that time I was fortunate enough to work for some excellent clients both in Australia and in the United States. This included Adore Beauty, SoldNest, EvacGuide and Paleo Hacks.
