Nicole Sullivan is a CSS performance guru living in California. She began her professional career in 2000, when her future husband (then a W3C employee) told her that if her website didn’t validate he wouldn’t be able to sleep at night. She thought she’d better figure out what this “validator” thing was all about, and a love for standards was born.
As her appreciation for performance and large-scale sites grew, she went on to work in the online marketing business, building CSS framework solutions for many well known European and worldwide brands such as SFR, Club Med, SNCF, La Poste, FNAC, Accor Hotels, and Renault.
Nicole now works for Yahoo! in the Exceptional Performance group. Her role involves researching and evangelising performance best practices and building tools like YSlow that help other F2E’s create better sites. She writes about standards, her dog, and her obsession with object oriented CSS at stubbornella.org.
