Hey there. I'm a front-end designer and developer with over 13 years of experience. I am currently available for hire within Bristol, UK.
My background began with website and front-end design, though the past five years have happily seen me transition into a fully self-taught front-end development role. With a solid grasp of design, I'm well-suited to tackle the tricky details of modern front-end development.
I've been fortunate to work on a wide variety of projects over the years that have helped me build a solid, multi-faceted, technical and creative skillset that I'm always looking to improve and expand upon.
This particular set of skills, along with my professional interests, runs over into other related fields including realtime/videogame art, visual design, and animation. Front-end development is where my interests converge, and I'd love to work on projects that bring these disciplines together.
What I'm Looking For
I'm looking to join a company/studio that follows best-practices, that automates the boring stuff, and that has a drive for excellence, rather than just getting another product out the door.
I'm looking for employment that allows me to develop accessible, performant, and responsive sites that work flawlessly on all devices, in all browsers, and to work on these projects from start to finish. My professional drive and satisfaction comes from the thorough and proper finishing of projects.
From my own experience, I'd rather avoid working to a schedule that demands that I work on several codebases every day as standard business practice — sporadic client emergencies notwithstanding. You can read more about this in Notes to an Agency - Time.
Ideally, I'm looking to join a small to medium sized team of passionate and skilled people, working in a relaxed but work-oriented environment, on interesting projects that allow me to roll up my sleeves, get stuck in, and grow further as a front-end developer.
