Thanks for stopping by my résumé
I am a strong, experienced Full-stack PHP/Laravel developer & agile Scrum project manager with extensive experience in numerous varied projects across multiple brands and industries. Through my strong background in design, development and project management, I’ve crafted engaging SAAS apps, Websites, Micro-sites and games for some really great companies.
My strengths are greatest when combining my skills, taking projects from the brief through conceptualisation, design, development and on to delivery. Not as a maverick but as the leader of great teams creating great things.
To date, my work has rewarded me with some games industry accolades as the artist of the first BBFC certified computer games, an ‘Interactive Entertainment’ BAFTA nomination for ‘Creatures Playground’, national award winning design for my team’s work with Ford Motor Co and regional recognition in development when competing in the Property Marketing Awards against far larger brands and budgets such as Candy & Candy and The Shard with my work on the website for London Square.
I help businesses and people work in more intuitive ways through applied knowledge. I do it because it’s the best way I‘ve found to satisfy that which has always driven me - to learn, understand, improve and effect change - in creative ways.
Summary of skills:
- Advanced developer level of SAAS, CMS, CRM and eComm applications.
- Passionate about Code, Design and User Experience.
- Effective personal/team time-management and development organisation.
- Good in managing time and organising tasks that deliver to deadlines.
- Avid learner of new coding practices and concepts.
- Working use of AWS, EB2, RDS, S3, Vagrant, Apache, Nginx, GIT & Bitbucket and CI/CD
