My name is Nathan Simpson. My friends call me Nath.
I am a frontend developer and web/mobile applications designer in Sydney Australia, passionate about Design Systems and building useful applications from concept to delivery.
Right now I'm building Design Systems and React/React-Native apps at Thinkmill, one of the most renowned software development consultancies in Australia.
Before, I was a freelance graphic designer, helping small businesses in regional New South Wales build their websites and brands.
I was born in Orange, New South Wales, and I'm currently living in Sydney with my wife.
When I was 13 years old I started developing a taste for design. I designed logos and business cards for family and small businesses in the Orange are, before transitioning into building websites in HTML and CSS. I then moved into building and managing Wordpress websites, and "accidentally" learnt some PHP through custom themes and plugins.
Speaking and Writing
I've spoken at the SydJS and React Sydney meetups. I try to post recordings of these talks on my website.
I also occasionally write articles on The Apple Post.
Outside of work, I'm usually working on a side-project, or watching Formula 1 at crazy-o'clock.

- Formula 1 & V8 Supercars
- All types of cars
- Star Wars, Marvel & Batman movies
