Member Bio

Senior Front End Developer – Helping businesses create accessible, mobile friendly, fast loading websites. 15 years experience. Bristol based

Bristol based Web Developer and Consultant. Specialising in Front End Development – HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript/jQuery and Responsive Design. Aside from those specialities, I also have experience in SEO, Web Performance, Optimisation and UX.

I have 15 years commercial experience having worked in large companies such as NatWestRBS, University of Bristol, NewDay and RAC, and digital agencies such as OakwoodEMO UnlimitedMcCann Bristol & Realise (Edinburgh/London).

I attended SXSW in 2017 with the Bristol Media delegation, keeping up with the latest trends and technologies in the industry.

I’m big into Responsive Design and Web Accessibility – The surge in mobile and tablet use over desktop means all websites need to move to responsive sites or they are missing out. With accessibility – I’ve seen how poor some websites are for people with disabilities. More needs to be done to make websites more accessible to these users – poorly accessible websites also mean less visitors!

I’ve been in Bristol a few years now, always keen to meet others in the industry, give me a shout and we can have a chat over a coffee.
