Get in touch

Here is some useful information if you want to get in touch with me.

I need help with Perch/Notist/Smashing Magazine

I am involved with quite a few things, but I am not always the best person to contact with regard to those things. So even if you are a friend, please use the support channels for those things – you will most likely get a faster answer!

Perch and Perch Runway customer support is mostly via the forum, or contact Perch by emailing

Notist customer support can be accessed via our support page.

For support with anything to do with Smashing Magazine, use the contact form. If you are interested in writing for Smashing there is information on the site which explains what we need to consider your idea for publication.

Can you speak at my event?

If schedules work out, quite possibly. Take a look at this page which has information about asking me to speak and then drop me a line via email.

Can you help me with my CSS problem?

I get several emails a day from people who would like help with some specific CSS or other web development issues, unfortunately I can’t answer those and also do any work. CSS questions are best posted to Stack Overflow where there is an entire community of folk to help out.

For general CSS information then I would suggest MDN is a good place to look for detailed and accurate explanations, code snippets and browser support information.

You ignored my direct message!

Yes, I probably did. Or I simply didn’t see it. With all the Slack Channels, Twitter, Facebooks, LinkedIn and so on communication comes at me from everywhere and I have no way to triage these DMs. I am really good at answering email however, so if you actually want a reply, and your query is not related to one of the above things, I would suggest emailing
