About me

I love to ask questions and solve problems! I come to my current role as a front end developer from diverse educational and working environments. Learning new things is very important to me, and my current pursuit offers a lot of material, allowing me (often demanding) to learn something new. I want to be able to express my ideas with more accuracy by learning and refining ways of doing things. I love working in a unrestricted digital world, and enjoy the unique benefits it provides. Writing and re-using code, ideas and methods allows me to stand on the shoulders of myself and others each time I build something new. I have developed a keen interest in information architecture, human computer interaction and app conceptualisation

Work history

Creative Developer

Imaginate Creative

Jun 2015
  • Royal Leamington Spa, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • My role at imaginate has been predominately during the planning and building of web projects, which are the areas I most enjoy. My work has allowed me to become proficient with wide range of front end coding languages and creative software. During my time I have become confident with front end web technologies, giving me a great sense of achievement. I have been closely involved with clients, designers and other developers to build, maintain and iterate numerous websites, including multilingual, e-commerce and content managed websites. I have also found that becoming comfortable using common development tools such as version control and deployment procedures has allowed me to work effectively with others and tackle large problems easily. I have enjoyed the opportunities I have had to represent Imaginate and network with a wider community. Being involved when building and presenting pitches to clients has been rewarding, and helped me become comfortable with clients and supported my ability to maintain a effective working relationship over the long term. Clients include: Robinsons & Wimbledon, The Colour Run, HSBC, ESPN, England Korfball, O2, IMG, Taste Festivals, Henley Women’s Regatta, Yaguara Cachaça, Bespoke Brewing Co. Winter Wonderland, Champions Tennis,
