Gareth Perilli

Web Developer


Who is Gareth Perilli?

Hi. This is my portfolio site I have created to show my projects and interests. I am a web developer based in Japan, self-taught to begin with, but now with a LeWagon bootcamp training in Tokyo.

I enjoy working on app development projects, and so I recently left behind my old job as an English teacher to become a web developer.

I've done freelance work for Placer , a UK-based startup in the holiday and home investment industry, Lisa , a German Hi-tech services company working in the aeronautics and AI sectors, and several other small organizations.

From 2022 to 2023 I was working Bee2B in Tokyo as a web developer. My day-to-day work there was within an international development team using mainly Rails and Vue.
