About me


My freelance career started in 2009, initially I was focused on e-commerce applications developing bespoke features to extend the capability of open source e-commerce software including Zen Cart and Open Cart. I also worked to link small business websites with their eBay and other online selling channels through available APIs.

In 2011 I started to work with Nick at Tidal Media in London. Coding front and back end website solutions turning amazing design work into a technical and functional product. Utilising JQuery and AJAX functions to produce visually rewarding results. We continue to work together.

Since 2012 I have also been working full time as the lead Software Engineer for the safety critical Astute Class Submarine Platform Management System.

I also have 5 years past experience with an electronic systems manufacturer including software to RTCA DO-178B, mostly working on LED lighting solutions for military fast jet and helicopter platforms including Saab, Eurofighter and Sikorsky.

I continue to consider freelance projects but my time is limited at the moment with a full time contract (above) and commitments to long term clients.
