Senior Accessibility Engineer; The Paciello Group (TPG)
Léonie Watson 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), accessibility consultant for Gov.UK, and owner of LJWatson Consulting. Amongst other things she is co-chair of the W3C Web Platform Working Group, and a member of the ARIA and SVG working groups.
In her spare time Léonie blogs on tink.uk, speaks at web conferences, and has been known to write for Smashing magazine, SitePoint.com and Net magazine. She also loves cooking, dancing and drinking tequila (although not necessarily in that order).
