Skills & Experience


A selection of the things I've worked on or people I've worked with in no particular order. Some I can show you and some I can't.

The Economist

The Economist asked me to produce templates for the new Apple News app. My role was to work with their Designer to advise what was possible according to the documentation and produce the templates with JSON.

Mail Plus

For Mail Plus I built an initial Wordpress website for the (at the time) new digital version of the Daily Mail. The client was demanding with a brief that changed almost daily. After the initial launch the wordpress site was then replaced with a more comprehensive PHP solution (using the zend framework) which I helped integrate new HTML, CSS & javascript into.

Pharmiweb Solutions

Pharmiweb work with some of the worlds biggest pharmaceutical companies. Whilst working with them I helped build the HTML, SASS and Javascript for their biggest clients new website. I also built and maintained sales presentations put together with HTML, CSS and Javascript, and worked with them on new technologies and internal tools to help make their workflow more efficient.

Orka Golf

A wordpress website for a high end golfing brand. I worked with the designer to build the wordpress back end and integrate the HTML, CSS and jQuery into a wordpress back end - giving what the client wanted down to the pixel.


I provided wowcher with a sales document generator, which enabled their sales reps to choose from any number of editable variables in a CMS (built with PHP), which would then output as a PDF to send prospective advertisers.


I've worked with Metro to produce a number of promotional websites and splash pages for various competitions. Each one needed to be responsive, as well as work within the metro's Apple & Android apps.
