As a web development professional I’ve honed my skills for many years, more than a decade in fact, in an attempt to become as good as I could possibly be in this chosen profession. My abilities are diverse, most learned through work, some through study, but mostly through persistence. As a designer I’ve done design for the retail industry, an online store and an online recruitment platform, as a front end developer I’ve worked on an extensive amount of projects both commercial and freelance, for local and international clients and companies. Having helped develop engaging customer facing websites, intranets, content management systems, landing pages and blogs. I’m a proactive, out-of-the-box thinker, whether working alone or as part of a development team having provided high end code on large scale production web and mobile sites, with a strong focus on maintainability and scalability in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.
