About me

An experienced freelance front-end web developer; currently splitting my time between a number of different digital agencies across the UK and clients in London including The Economist, MTV, Topshop and Jaeger. Specialising in front-end/user interface (UI) development and/or WordPress, Adept at coming in and getting straight to work. Every agency (or in-house team) works slightly differently and the trick is to be able to absorb those nuances and create work that fits in with the flow of the in-house team. My job is to finish the project I’ve been assigned, impart some of the techniques I’ve learnt elsewhere (without, of course, ruffling feathers) and then move onto the next project without the permanent developers cursing the code I’ve left behind.
