Skills and Experience
I have a wealth of knowledge using technologies many will never have heard of. Below is a selection of the primary technology I have experience using on a day to day basis working on digital projects, websites, ecommerce shops and software development projects. If you are using any of the technologies listed below then I help you with your digital projects, either if you are a business looking for a digital project or another digital agency or software development house that is looking for some additional resource to use within your team on a freelance or contract basis. Get in touch to discuss your individual requirements.
For more specific information about the frameworks, inner technologies, systems and methodologies I use throughout my general technology stack click on the relevant link below to find out more. I use a great deal of technology on a daily basis which is ever changing, so I’ll try to keep this page as up to date as possible although if there is a technology you’re working with and are struggling to find the skills to deliver this, then get in touch with us anyway and if I can’t handle this myself then I will surely know someone who we can direct you to who can help you with your project. The information you’ll find on these links is very technical, so if you’re looking for non-technical information about the work I do and how we can help then have a good read over the Services we offer and the primary Sectors I work in.
Below are the core skills I have which should put you at ease to know I have worked extensively with a wide range of technologies within high end commercial applications. I am highly adaptable to new technologies which come to market virtually on a daily basis at the moment. Almost all new technologies, frameworks and libraries (i.e. Node.js, Angular.js etc.) are ultimately based on the core foundations of software development, meaning they can be picked up extremely quickly as/when the project requires. I am the sort of software developer that understands the wider technology landscape and I am able to assess and select the best course of action for a specific project, rather than simply working with new and shiny libraries or framworks, which are often not as well supported in the comunity and can cause more problems than using well established systems.

Do you need additional and flexible resource to help you deliver projects to a high standard, on time and to budget? Then get in touch to discuss your project and let’s see how I can join your team on a contract basis to help you. My skills are both vast and experienced, I am no one trick pony, I prefer to classify myself as a multi-specialist. The skills I have developed over a number of years working professionally across a range of sectors, technology stacks and companies of varying sizes has allowed me to continually expand my areas of expertise.
Naturally due to the sensitive nature of the work I do, I am not able to talk publicly about specific projects, so I hope the information you find on the following pages is sufficient to allow you to understand the types of projects I am able to help with. I am available on both a freelance and contract basis to suit your needs, working primarily around the North West with occassional work in London when required.
