About me

Skills and experience

I am a professional full-stack web developer based in Bristol, UK with over two decades of commercial experience in the web industry.

For more details on my skills and experience, take a look at my linked-in profile.


These days i’m a full-time Automattician and am not taking on freelance work.


I grew up in Cambridgeshire, but now live in the south of the lovely city of Bristol. I am an unashamed geek, living and breathing digital technology. I also dabble in music (playing bass guitar in a garage punk/surf band and a synth-pop duo), cycling (transport, adventure, skids and wheelies) and (occasional) skateboarding.
