I had a keen interested in technology from a young age, my Dad bought an Apple Machintosh in the early 90's and I was always playing and experimenting on it.

Attention to detail in responsive design

I have a keen eye for detail and the user experience when developing across multiple playforms. I create soultions that are balanced and consistant, that can be managed easily, with a front end design that matches the brand spec, while also delivering an awesome user experience.

Delivering projects to spec, on time

I understand the importance of delivering a project on time and I will do what it takes to make ot happen. I believe prepatatory work is key but I am also adaptable to new circumstances later on in the development process. Any new circumstances can be accommodated with the correct communication.

A passion for Front End Development and the UX

You can be assured that the project I deliver is using the most up to date technologies. I have a keen interest in the newest industry trends and innovations, I constantly keep my knowledgebase fresh, both in the field of front end develoment and the tech industry in general.

  • Expert HTML/CSS

    I have almost 10 years eperience with HTML/CSS coding and have seen the technologies blossom in recent years, adding impressive functionality to the once simple mark up languages. I'm constantly updating my skills with the newest features of HTML5 and CSS3 mark-up, in order to create user interfaces with the most consise and powerful code.

  • Javascript, jQuery AngularJS & JSON

    I'm a solid Javascript programmer, I refresh my skills continually to ensure I'm on top of my game, producing the best, most efficient code I can possibly write. I often mix between writing jQuery for DOM manipuation and event handeling while using vanilla Javascript for most other tasks, I enjoy the powerful mix between the two technologies. I have also recently learned AngularJS and I am looking forward to encorporating it into my projects more.
