As an experienced professional web developer I have produced many sites and applications over the years some examples of which are listed below.

Based in Brighton, East Sussex my clients range from local businesses and web agencies to businesses and agencies in London, Holland, the U.S. and beyond.

De-mystifying the technology

My core aim is to de-mystify web development technologies so that the companies and agencies I work for can make informed decisions about how they want me to develop websites for them. And I like to ensure that the specific requirements of any project are clearly defined and agreed before I start writing software.

Project process

Many of the projects I develop follow this project process to ensure that I deliver the right product on time that meets the requirements:

Requirements planning
Staging site development and testing
User acceptance testing
Go live

With smaller projects training and user acceptance testing may be minimal but generally they still play an important part.

Some Recent Projects

Recently I have spent a lot of time developing with React.js and APIs I have developed in PHP.  I have also integrated applications with APIs provided by other systems including Mailchimp, Salesforce, Eventbrite and Meetup.


I joined the development team working on Google’s Sitekit WordPress plugin. The plugin integrates WordPress sites with a number of Google’s services including Analytics, Pagespeed, Search Console, Adsense & Optimise. The development was in React.js and PHP with the test environments Jest, Backstop, Storybook and PHPUnit.

Kyowa Kirin

I worked as the technical lead for developing pharmaceutical product hub headless sites using React.js and the CMS, Acoustic Content.

Nomura Bank

I worked in a small team of React.js developers rewriting trading applications which were originally developed in Flex. We developed the applications using the Material-UI React component library and Jest for testing.

Mind The Product

I built the Linode linux and Git version control development environment that Elliot Taylor and I used to develop a new website and events management application.  The site and application are built on WordPress using an MVC framework plugin I developed for WordPress a while ago which Elliot and I have since been collaborating on called ProdPress.  The site has some API integration and we’re using SASS with Gulp and Node to compile the CSS and Javascript.  We have done all the front and back end coding on this site.

White Clarke Group

For the development and production environments of this client’s websites I built an infrastructure on Rackspace.  There are a number of  cloud linux servers instances with loadbalancers and cloud database instances.  These are fully integrated with Git version control.  The websites are WordPress based which I have successfully loadbalanced and include SASS with Gulp for compiling Javascript and CSS.  These websites were orginally Expression Engine which I developed with for a long time.  Then Elliot Taylor joined me and we converted their websites from Expression Engine to WordPress with support for multilingual.


The Psychology of Diabetes
This site is a bespoke training system which I wrote using the PHP MVC framework Codeigniter. I ran a consultation workshop with the client from which I wrote a specification and used this is in conjunction with designs to do all the frontend and backend coding.


Please have a look at my website to see more examples of my work, and I look forward to hearing from you.’
