I develop mobile and web based games, applications, animations & websites.

Working for a digital agency for 6 years has given me the opportunity to work on a huge variety of projects, allowing me to build a broad range of skills which may not be typical of all software developers. I adapt quickly to new challenges and I work closely with all parties when planning, designing, developing and testing products. My attention to detail and ability to turn concepts into engaging, delightful experiences is something I'm extremely proud of. I have been writing software for over 15 years, developing a wide range of products including mobile apps & games, realtime 2nd screen broadcast experiences, e-commerence platforms, big data applications & fully PCI compliant payments solutions.
