With experience in front-end (HTML5, CSS3, JS) and back-end (REST APIs, Frameworks such as Laravel / Zend) and mobile apps (ionic development, phoneGap) I help create interactive solutions for a variety of clients.
Utilising php frameworks such as Laravel or creating bespoke code, I've written services supporting thousands of users, including REST APIs, e-learning applications and more
As well as providing development services, I can also help you decide strategic roadmaps via consultancy services.

Built with Scalability
I can help advise the best methodology to ensure your project grows with you.
Sometimes building the site is half the work, i'm always around to provide ongoing support.
For the majority of projects I am supplied designs/assets in figma/PSD format and am then tasked to create the rest of the product, using a CSS framework such as bootstrap with the backend created in a variety of languages
I have over 15 years experience in PHP development, normally using Laravel or Lumen for creating bespoke products including invoicing systems, e-commercce solutions, or other projects requiring custom workflows
For more content focussed sites I use Wordpress to quickly and efficiently bring a project to life. I have extensive experience in custom wordpress and woocommerce development and have had wordpress work featured on Google TV adverts.
