Gordon Turner



Hello, my name is Gordon Turner, I am a developer, creative, architect and leader. I have worked with technology my whole life, building and making things.

Someone described me once as a curious generalist, which stuck with me. I am curious about a lot of different things.

Professionally, I have worked on projects of widely varying scales and with established brands and smaller start ups. The work I have enjoyed and had the most success with were for projects where we are trying something new and having fun.

To get to know be better, check out my About page.

I have had many projects on the go over the years and I try to share what I have learned. The projects I have worked on have varied widely, from software and coding, to hardware and 3d printing.

Below are a selection of some of my projects, to see everything, checkout my blog.
