Summary

Senior web developer with over 10 years of experience building websites for public and private sector.
I work with both individual clients and with creative agencies on projects of all sizes to create user-centric, responsive websites. I work remotely or on-site, as sole developer or as an integrated part of a development team, depending on need and location.

• Website Development (front end and back end)
• User Experience Design, Modelling, and Prototyping
• Information Architecture, Business Logic and Database Design
• Debugging and Testing
• Documentation, Support, and User Training
• System Administration, Updates and Maintenance

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE
• Projects worked on range from small microsites to private corporate intranets to high profile government campaigns.
• Extensive experience building in a number of different CMS and e-commerce platforms, using a variety of languages and technologies, working to both waterfall / linear and agile / iterative development processes.
• Motivated, resilient, technically competent individual with a creative and rational approach to problem solving. Able to dissect complex problems into their logical parts to create a sensible implementation strategy that leads to clean, elegant solutions that are easy to extend and maintain.
• Strong communicator able to convey ideas clearly and from a user- and value-driven perspective rather than just a purely technical one. Able to draw out and interpret underlying business objectives to devise and implement the best and most cost-effective solution for the client’s needs.
