I’m a frontend developer based in Manchester.
For the past two years I have worked almost exclusively in React, with some Gatsby and Jekyll thrown in too. I have previously worked extensively in Angular.
- CSS and Sass
- JS, ES5 and ES6+
- Node, Webpack, Gulp
- React, Jekyll, Gatsby and Angular
- CI and TDD
I have integrated with many different content management systems using .NET (Sitecore and Umbraco), PHP (WordPress and Craft CMS) and of course with headless, cloud based systems such as Prismic and Contentful.
I’ve been fortunate enough to work on some really amazing projects, with great agencies and clients. I’ve listed a selection of some of them below.
