Twickenham, London

A front end web developer who believes in web standards and accessibility - core skill sets are:

  • HTML5
  • CSS (SASS & LESS)
  • JS, jQuery (& DOM scripting)
  • Accessibility
  • Prototyping / rapid visualisation
  • Pixel perfect build from PSD's
  • UX
  • Responsive / adaptive web dev
  • CMS / .NET integration

I am a specialist in helping clients scope and plan their site builds. My expertise and experience as a senior/lead FE Dev means that I can communicate technical concepts to non technical clients and vice versa. This makes me a integral part of any team that wishes to plan large scale web project that requires the buy in from many different departments.
