As a certified Laravel developer with almost 15 years of web development experience, in both front-end UI and server-side Programming, I have a reputation for producing high quality, long-term solutions to demanding criteria and challenging projects. My main tools of the trade are HTML, SASS/CSS, and JS/jQuery, with an OOP PHP and MYSQL backend architecture.
Through my time, I have worked with clients of every size, from local village primary schools to national and global corporations like Costain and SAP. Each project provides unique opportunities to advance my abilities and learn new skills, where I have gained a large, and ever increasing repertoire of programming languages, technologies, and frameworks to bolster any project that I come across. As a software team lead, I have guided many successful projects whilst also training colleagues in the necessary skills. With this expertise, I am able to deliver a full project lifecycle - from specification, to deployment - and determine the best software stack for the job, allowing me to successfully and creatively produce an end result that will make the greatest impact for a client and the end users.
I’m also a firm believer in the Open Source community, releasing software on Github or NPM and have also helped on a few Open Source projects, such as Wappalyzer and bxSlider.
