A short history of me

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.

As a front end developer from a design background, I have a strong interest in design and UX, and my focus when building a website or app, is always thinking about how a user will actually use the app. I see high quality, tested, and maintainable code as an essential way to give users a great experience

With over twenty years experience in the web design/development field, I have worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from interactive, animated online training courses, bespoke eCommerce sites, online marketing and mobile app development.

I have worked for small businesses, design agencies, freelance and consulted to large organisations and government departments. My key strength is my ability to quickly understand a new project, scope and plan new tasks and work productively and efficiently.
