ABOUT

I have been a contract technical lead, tech manager or senior developer working in teams building web based software, web apps and websites since 1999.
Since 2008 I have focused on user interface development, working mostly in scrum teams who place a high importance on user experience and cross device development.
I am a client facing developer with excellent verbal and written communication skills, with extensive experience in object orientated programming and a creative flair.
I am equally comfortable and capable programming on my own, problem solving as part of design team or developing strategy as part of a business focused technical team.

I am interested in hearing of new oppurtunities for freelance work, if you have one let me know via email
