About me

I'm a web and app developer, based in Skipton, North Yorkshire.  I am a generalist developer with front-end specialisms.  The user is king when it comes to everything that I do.  If a system is not easy to use, it's not working properly.  I use modern front-end tools such as Typescript, Sass and Pug to create performant experiences that are fast to load and easy to maintain.  I use back-end languages and frameworks, such as Node, C#, PHP and Java,  to build RESTfull APIs and bespoke Content Management Systems.  I have extensive experience project planning, leading and managing teams of multi-disciplined developers and designers, whilst liasing directly with clients.

My professional career has allowed me to work with clients, including, First Direct, CBBC, Disney, Volkswagen, Asda, Pizza Hut, GAME and Willmott Dixon.

  • Front-end builds, including custom HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
