Sam Wrigley

About

I'm Sam Wrigley, a Front-End Engineer helping to create contribution experiences at IMDb. I specialise in all things front-end with a strong emphasis on modern, scalable JavaScript.

I know my way around a back-end too, having previously worked as a Full-Stack Developer and Software Developer. I also have a strong understanding of user-experience and user-interface design—having studied Graphic Design at university.

Outside of web-development, I have a passion for photography and I’m also a keen outdoor runner.
