Web development portfolio

I create lots of stuff for the web, I've done so for a long time.

I've been told I write clean, efficient, readable code that makes websites fast, and build interfaces which make using them a pleasure. I've learnt that it is only by keeping all of the component parts of a project simple can it be truly understood, thrive and grow over time.

Though my core skills originate from my technical and programming background, I love the concept of developing a product as a whole: how a potential customer discovers your product, their first impressions of it, how they interact with it and how it is possible to maintain and develop a relationship between them and you, long into the future.

This section of my personal website lists a small selection of my web-based portfolio. The work shown here - generally small projects - has been carried out solely by me, either in a freelance capacity or purely for my own interest.

This portfolio does not include work I have done for any full-time employer, nor does it include those client projects covered by a non-disclosure agreement.

I generally don't do freelance work anymore but I could be tempted if your project is right. If you're after someone with strong web knowledge and experience, who understands how your users think and behave, and has a desire to get your project, large or small, done properly, feel free to introduce yourself.

I am happy working either by myself or as part of a team. I'm also proudly bilingual, feeling equally confident speaking English to your CEO or <geek> to your developers.
