I’m a London-based freelance front-end developer with a strong interest in UX and a background as a graphic designer. I work closely with designers, turning designs into interactive, responsive, data-driven websites and applications. My design background gives me a sharp eye for detail, translating designs as closely as possible to the finished product.

I’ve worked for some of the best agencies in London including Possible, TMW, Tangent and HeyHuman, and multiple small studios and startups, in a multitude of company sectors, team sizes and server environments. I work well alone and in a team.

I’ve also built over 50 websites using WordPress since 2008 – there’s not a lot I don’t know about WordPress!

In my spare time I enjoy travel, photography, mountain biking and music, and have an interest in finance and investments.
