Hi there. I'm Jon. I build websites.

I studied graphic design at college before going on to study multimedia design at the University of Sunderland. After a year in Canada, six years in Scotland, then five years in New Zealand, I am now back in the UK and based in Edinburgh.

I have over twelve years experience in the web design/development field, and have worked for small businesses, design agencies, freelance and as a contractor on large government projects. My key strength is my ability to quickly understand a new project, scope and plan new tasks and work productively and efficiently.

Munro Map

Munromap.co.uk is a personal project that has grown from a simple online list which I used to keep track of 'the Munros' I have bagged, to a large online community with over 4000 users.

I am currently developing a mobile App that is a companion to the site, allowing users to sync their online accounts with their phone, and have access to maps and stats offline.

I worked freelance for a couple of years, before moving on to mainly taking on contract roles. 

Freelance work involves everything - meeting clients, discussing projects, time management and budgeting, as well as design, build and hosting of complete websites.
