I work with clients of different sizes across a wide range of sectors, on extended/ongoing projects and one-off pieces of work. I also work with agencies who are looking to boost their development resource or want to bring a fresh pair of eyes to bear on a problem.

As well as the projects I’ve worked on for individual clients, you can find a summary of software I’ve worked with and my open source contributions on my personal GitHub and business GitHub profiles.


Key projects I have delivered for multiple clients include:

  • PHP upgrades (from 5.1 to 7.4)
  • Server upgrades and migrations to different providers
  • Automated invoicing systems
  • Automated data importing and exporting in a variety of formats, including CSV and Excel
  • Reviews of existing applications with recommendations for improvements

With all my clients I work to understand their business requirements and how best they can be met with a technical solution. A lot of my work involves interaction with users without development experience but with specific business knowledge, and I am highly competent at explaining technical concepts in an accessible manner.
