About me

An industrious and adaptable designer-developer-tinkerer, with a keen eye for detail and a passion for problem solving.

I have a solid background in design with a good technical head too. I’m open to projects ranging from UX/UI design (having had full-time roles in both) to a full developmental build of a site from design spec, when you’re just in need of a front-end developer with a designer’s eye.

I’m a big advocate of prototyping and designing in the browser - I’m intrigued by the intersection of design and engineering and I’m always striving to bridge that gap between disciplines.

The Forge & Foundry

Marketing, Web

The Forge is an award-winning venue, home to London’s most diverse musical talent. Its amazingly flexible building is reflected in the great breadth of the programme, which ranges from high-class concerts mid-week to live club nights at the weekend.

I designed and built a site for both The Forge and their sister restaurant and cocktail bar The Foundry, incorporating a ticketing system and dynamic templating for promoting events at the venue.
