Front end developer. Based in England, UK
I'm currently the lead UI developer at Purepoint helping close the gap between designers and back end developers. Our project is to work on a Ruby on Rails web application for a leading brand name in it's sector. I also have a strong design background. I am available for small projects. Please contact me if you'd like to work together.
Please bear in mind I am contractually forbidden to disclose some of my favourite projects and what you see below is simply a very small taste of what I have worked on over the last 8 years, some of which are now a few years old. If you would like to discuss my portfolio or have any other questions please get in touch.
Working with me
I am available on a consultancy basis - the knowledge gained whilst working on a Fortune 500 company website for the last 3 years has given me a somewhat unique perspective and deep insight when it comes to web design do's and don'ts. I am also skilled in overhauling outdated websites and making mobile first website redesigns using a solid, tried and tested workflow and stable software choices. Drop me a message
I had the pleasure of managing Simon for 14 months. Simon joined my team to help deliver a project with an incredibly tight deadline. The team already had 10 other team members at this point. Simon showed great enthusiasm and put in a lot of additional hard work to get up to speed quickly on the project. This was extremely beneficial for the team. Simon also possesses a valuable skill – he enjoys constant learning and improvement. During the time that I worked with Simon, there were times where we 'threw him in at the deep end' and he rose to the challenge.
Simon is a very candid individual and he displayed many key leadership qualities during our time working together. For example, Simon set a good example to those around him by maintaining a consistent output and high levels of effort. I have no doubt that this behaviour inspired those around him to do the same. He also encouraged his fellow team members and is a skilled frontend developer. He understands well the constraints that sometimes exist when working with slower-moving organisations and he has great interpersonal skills. If the opportunity arises for you to work with Simon, I would encourage you to do so.

I worked with Simon whilst I was the Global Head Of Digital and Ecommerce at Hive during a very busy period and Simon always worked with a very high degree of professionalism.
Simon not only did exceptional work based on the specs we gave him for each project, but he also gave input on how to make the end product even better and cared about how users would engage with the build.
Simon is an authority on web development and is clearly in the upper percentile in terms of developer qualifications. Simon’s invaluable suggestions and improvements helped create a stable, cross platform site and he pays attention to improve the aesthetics of the site as well as the functionality. It’s obvious he takes tremendous pride in his work, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or work with him again.
