Background

After earning my Computer Science Degree at Loughborough University, creating what is surely the first visual in-browser web page building tool and totting up a Student Loan, I worked with the family developing a business, building a house, converting a studio shop and looking after the animals and grounds.

During this time, developing my education in my own direction hand-coding front- and back-end, pushing the limits of web interface technology, including creation of a front-end web content loader (a pre-cursor to modern AJAX) and a dynamic generation of encrypted payment buttons (avoiding the need to manually make them in advance).

Taking things to the next step I started my career by jumping in at the deep end as a JavaScript developer to overhaul a comparison site before making it the first to animate results on screen as they are retrieved and involving myself in other parts of the technical department to broaden my knowledge. With that experience and adaptability I was able to secure a new position at an agency working up from general dynamic website maintenance, advancing and expanding my skill set to become lead front-end developer taking full development responsibility for large projects and managing development and production environments and servers.
