I graduated University with a degree in Multimedia & Internet Technologies back in 2009 and ever since I have been working as a full time Front End Web Developer. I have worked for design agencies & also for in-house development teams during my career. Currently I am working with a fantastic team at Ocean Finance.
In my current role I work closely with other Front End Developers, Backend Developers & Project Managers to improve the Ocean Finance website and Loan/Credit Card Application forms we have built. I manage my workload using Azure and I do my development using Visual Studios 2019 (.net) and Visual Studio Code.
Outside of work I am happily married to my beautiful wife Lucy going on 5 years now. In my spare time I like to go on walks and days out with Lucy and our dog Rosie. I am also a massive Manchester United fan and love watching the football at the weekend.
Whilst finishing my final year at University I worked for Gooey Creative as a work placement during my studies. At the end of the placement I was offered a full time position as a junior front end developer.
After finishing my placement at Gooey Creative and moving to Manchester full time I got a new position working for a private hospital as a Web Developer and IT Support Technician.
In my next position I went back working for a design agency. On a monthly basis I would be building 2/3 websites (wordpress) and assisting on internal projects.
I was approached to join a newly formed agency and head up the development department. On a day to day basis I would be managing our roster of 30+ clients creating websites and managing our dedicated UK Fast Server. You can read more about my appointment here. After 2 years of service I was promoted to Head of Development.
