Experience & Expertise

Software Development

PHP is my first language; I have been developing PHP applications since the age of 15. Prior to that, I wrote simple games in the BBC basic language. I heavily subscribe to agile methodology including test-driven development and continuous integration. Unit Testing, Peer Code Reviews (on larger projects) and stringent testing are required steps that ensure solid software, application and website development.

Website Design & Responsive Design

Most of my web design experience has been in the retail sector and my background has been to mostly focus on don't make the think website design and user-interface strategies. I usually use, and encourage others to use, Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla or Concrete5 for rapid CMS website development, I almost exclusively use Magento for e-commerce projects and Zend Framework or Symphony for more complex software based projects. I usually encourage responsive website designs that work correctly on both desktop and mobile devices.

SEO, & Social Media

I am very proficient in SEO and understand the base fundamentals. Every website layout I have ever created takes into account SEO best practices. I quickly and easily integrate mark-up for automatic page component recognition and Open Graph data for Facebook bookmarking best practices.


A large proportion of my experience is in digital marketing. I regularly work with agencies who require automated systems for their digital marketing and business intelligence campaigns.


Selecting the correct technical solutions based on complex business and technical needs, including financial budgeting and understanding business and technical impact. Management of software projects using agile methodology using flow charts, sequence diagrams, database diagrams and software design patterns using project management tools such and Trac and Jira to achieve continuous integration and rapid delivery.
