As a freelance developer, I have a passion for creating digital experiences both on and off the web. Having worked in web agencies for over 9 years, I've been lucky enough to work for some of the largest brands in the world.

From building Kinect based games for the Olympic torch relay to turning people upside down at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, and even tracking a giant fried egg across the country.

I thrive on finding interesting and unexpected digital solutions to any project brief.

The tools of my trade

HTML5 & CSS

I’m very comfortable putting together the front-end pretty stuff. I tend to use (but not overuse) Bootstrap to make things easy and write all my styles with Less.

Javascript

I’ve got experience in many areas of modern JS development for the web (Jquery, KnockoutJS, Angular) as well as Node.js on the server side.

Python

Python is my go to language for many of my projects both personal and professional. I have used Python to develop internal tools for colleagues, as well as systems to support experiential marketing campaigns.

PHP

I have many years experience building websites using PHP, I tend to use CodeIgniter for my PHP development needs, although I am just as comfortable with PHP CMSs such as Wordpress & Magento.

Unity 3D/C#

I have a passion for game development, and have been lucky enough to use Unity for a number of projects, including an iOS & Android game with over 30,000 downloads.

Arduino & Electronics

I have always had a passion for electronics from my time at school, and now my den gives me the opportunity play again! Arduino is a fantastic prototyping platform for quickly putting projects together.

Server Stacks

I’ve had the pleasure (?) of working with a number of server configurations over the years from LAMP to .Net on IIS. This is site is running on an AWS micro instance with an Ubuntu/Nginx/Gunicorn/Django stack.

Experience

“If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything very innovative.”

You don't work for 10 years without failing. A lot. What's important is learning from those failures quickly and spotting the issues before they arise in the future.

When I'm not doing the above you can usually find me cooking, watching cricket or taking our wonderful dog Sophie for a walk.
