I'm a big believer in doing what you're truly passionate about. For me, it's programming, something I've been doing since I was around 7 years old.
My days are spent building websites, anything from a brochure site for the local window cleaner, all the way to large complicated platforms powering price comparison websites, or online booking systems.
I'm passionate about tech, and my experience means I can do pretty much everything, from building servers, creating databases, writing code (obviously), all the way to desiging modern looking websites that work great even on mobile devices.
After 17 years working in the web development industry, 4 years as Technical Director for a large online marketing agency, and 2 years as the CTO for an online booking platform, I now focus on working with start-ups and small businesses, helping to develop their products and improve how they work online.
After nearly two decades spanning several industries, I've built up extensive experience to help any type of business.
I know the Internet literally inside-out, building and managing websites on a daily basis, constantly monitoring and optimising my clients' products.
I do pretty much everything myself.
I never outsource software development to some far away land.
Last but not least, I'm based in the UK but work across many different timezones - I'm always "on-call", and always available.
I can help with any tech-related issues, typically this falls under web design and development.
Designing and building "brochure" websites is more of a hobby; I tend to focus on larger web applications and scalable platforms.
Whether you need a more reliable solution to running your business, or you want to take over the world with a brand new concept, I can help.
If you're currently running your business via Excel, we should definitely talk!
For some examples of my work and experience, please see the Case Studies section.
If it's related to tech, chances are I can handle it, and if not, I'll know someone who can.
My day-to-day work usually involves:
A lot of my time is spent re-writing websites and applications that were either botched together in WordPress, or written in PHP, Node, Ruby, or some other new language all the "cool kids" are using, yet isn't secure and won't scale.
Personally I prefer road-tested and mature languages, that I know will scale up when needed.
I studied software engineering at Sheffield Hallam Univeristy in the UK and graduated with a degree in Computing Mathematics BSc (Hon) in 2002.
I've actually been programming since I was 7 years old, starting on a Commadore Vic-20, happy days!
With a degree in Computing Mathematics, I have a solid foundation in important concepts such as computational-complexity and artificial intelligence.
I've worked in a variety of industries, from online-recruitment, e-commerce, rental-subscriptions, to digital advertising.
I do everything, literally everything.
