I'm a front end developer with a strong interest in UX and a background as an award winning graphic designer.
I work closely with designers, developing wireframes and turning ideas into interactive, responsive, data-driven websites and applications.
I love web standards and open source technology, and spend most of my time working with HTML5, CSS3 / LESS / SASS, Bootstrap / Foundation / Inuit, AJAX, jQuery / Zepto, Backbone / Underscore, Grunt, WordPress / PHP and Git / GitHub.
I've worked with, and consulted for Red Bull, HSBC, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Brilliant Basics, Audience Trading Platform, The Brit Awards and UK2 Group.
I'm currently working as freelance contractor and consultant in London, please get in touch if you'd like to discuss a booking.
Chimera is a unification product, with the end goal of consolidating many different ISP brands back and front ends into a single system, for both admins and end customers. The app is powered by a RESTful JSON API, sitting between a Perl back end and Backbone.js front end. My role in the project was taking responsibility of user experience, visual design, interactions and UI framework. I helped define user requirements, write feature specs, create wireframes and develop full interactive UIs. Using a very modular approach to the UI framework allowed for quick development of new features, while ensuring a consistant user experience and easy maintainability.
Contract UX/UI Developer
Working on a variety of internal and customer facing applications for their client HSBC, I acted as an intermediary between the design and tech teams, creating prototypes, building CSS frameworks and defining interactions. I was lead consultant on a bespoke mobile framework and spent a month in Hong Kong ensuring the smooth delivery of the project to the banks internal IT team. Unfortunately I can't show any work examples from this role online, but am more than happy to discuss the role in more detail and show some demos in person.
