About me

I am passionate about delivering usable, visually pleasing sites and have experience in the life-cycle of a website from meeting with clients, designing the user experience, developing, uploading and testing sites through to training users and managing content. I'm a creative problem solver, self motivated and have a stubborn eye for detail.

My real passion lies in using digital technology to shape, grow and improve opportunities for the business. ​

My Skills

I have strong technical skills in HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript and MySQL. I have worked with various content management systems including Wordpress, Drupal, SharePoint and SilverStripe , which have supported the building of new sites and the management of existing ones. Through working in a wider IT team, I have also gained significant skill and experience in consulting with customers and precisely understanding thier needs. I am accustomed to working in a fast‐paced project environment and have the ability to multi-task and think on my feet.
