Hi! I'm Tim Hanlon

About Me

I'm a technologist with a background in online media and ad tech, and I specialise in building things fast.

I'm excited about the explosion of technologies for rapidly building amazing software, like serverless, BaaS, GraphQL, and utility-first CSS.

The most-used tools in my toolbox are Cloudflare Workers, Nuxt, Hasura, Apollo and Tailwind. Once Nuxt 3 ships, I'm most excited to take urql and Headless UI for a spin.

I spent the formative years of my career building New Atlas into a leading independent science and technology publication. I've since started two technology companies, and consulted to many others.

I live in Melbourne, Australia with my beautiful young family.

When I'm not working, parenting, or cleaning up after my daughters, I'm gaming or training Muay Thai.

You can email me here or say hello on Twitter.
