Photo: Léonie Watson Léonie Watson (AKA Tink) began using the internet in 1993, turned it into a web design career in 1997, and (despite losing her eyesight along the way) has been enjoying herself thoroughly ever since.

Léonie is a Senior Accessibility Engineer with The Paciello Group (TPG) and owner of LJWatson Consulting. Amongst other things she is also a director of the British Computer Association of the Blind, writes for .Net magazine and SitePoint.com, and is a member of the W3C HTML and SVG working groups. She even appears every now and then on TV and radio to talk about technology.

In her spare time Léonie blogs on Tink.UK, talks on the AccessTalk podcast, and loves cooking, dancing and drinking tequila (although not necessarily in that order).
