Front-End Developer and Designer Freelancing in Auckland, New Zealand
Hello, I’m Jason. I'm a Front-End Developer and Designer focused on websites and design-systems.
I run a Design and Development Studio, Lodestone Studio, focused on NZ Financial and Professional Services Companies.
I focus on using ReactJS with Gatsby, Prismic CMS for content and Styled-Components or CSS with BEM for styling. Alongside these tools, I always aim to work towards best practices in accessibility, responsiveness, performance and security.

Kind words from past colleagues
“Jason has a creative but practical out of the box way of thinking and to top it off, a relaxed demeanor that makes you naturally feel at ease around him.”
“When I think about Jason I think of his wealth of knowledge and intellect.
He automatically creates a safe space to share, learn and collaborate; inviting others opinions before his own, Jason actively asks questions to understand the ‘why’ and seeks to see things from a different perspective.
Jason has a creative yet pragmatic approach & you can rely on him to stand up for what’s right.”
