About

CodeMacabre is Myles Lewando (pronounced 'le-van-doe').

I am a learning technologist at the School of Geography and Planning at Cardiff University by day; by night, a freelance web developer, designer and mapper. I have strong interests in cartography and data visualisation, experimental interaction systems, digital learning, and I am an open-source and open data advocate.

My style tends towards space 🛰️, invertebrates 🕷️ and the macabre ⚰️.
