I’m a front-end developer with 8 years professional experience. I have a passion for helping teams collaborate and work better together, streamline workflow and maintain quality — speaking on these subjects at local meetups and national conferences.

My career has been built in-house at software companies and in some of the top agencies in Manchester. I have had the chance to work on huge scale, content-managed platforms for companies around the world, as well as consult and advise on front-end development for my employers clients.

I live in the the UK and can travel or work remotely where required. I’m looking for contract front-end development and consultancy work for digital agencies or companies with their own in-house products.
