me

I hail from a little peninsula called the Wirral in the North-west of England, just a short ferry ride across the river Mersey to Liverpool.

I graduated in 2011 from the University of Manchester with a BSc(Hons) First Class in Internet Computing. This course also included a year working at a Java development company.

I freelance as a web developer and have created sites for many different clients, with fully customised CMS integration and search engine friendly HTML and CSS.

Since then I've been working as an Android / iPhone developer on large-scale apps for the private sector, as well as dabbling with other technologies along the way.

Mobile Apps

I can create native Android apps, and I'm learning iOS development so I will soon be able to create native iPhone apps.

Watch this space!

Applications

I've got over four years experience with Java and I've dabbled with Ruby, Python and ASP.NET and would be interested in expanding my horizons with other languages.

Web design

I can make you a new website from start to finish, including CMS integration for Wordpress or Joomla.

I can also provide email and hosting services.
