I am a northerer, a front-end developer, a musician, a cyclist and a father of two living in a small not-so-sunny northern town near Sheffield, South Yorkshire (UK).
I graduated from Wakefield College in 2006 with an HND in Interactive Media. I've got 8 years experience in Front-End Development and spent 3 years working for an NMA Top 100 Interactive Agency in Technophobia.
I was lucky enough to be asked to teach Web Development to FdA students and I consulted for the University Centre Wakefield for 1 year.
I'm currently employed by Ledgard Jepson, a small but highly-skilled New Media agency in Tankersly, Sheffield. Where we do great work.
I specialise in building responsive HTML5 templates styled with the Sass framework using the BEM methodology to ensure best practices for accessibility (WCAG 2.0 ‘AA’ (Double A)) and standards are met. I build with a mobile-up philosophy with graceful degradation and progressive enhancement. I tend to use vanilla JS now over jQuery but have experience of both.
I have a working knowledge of integrating front-end templates into .NET and RoR applications, it's been a while since I've used PHP, but know that Laravel is making waves in the dev world. More recently I've started dabbling in Node and React.
I've worked with clients such as: Green Flag, Pizza Express, South Yorkshire Police, Western Digital, NVidia, Microsoft, Best Western Hotels, Council for British Archaeology, Geographical Association, Meadowhall and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council.
I even passed my Cycling Proficiency and I've got my 100 meters swimming badge. Although I'm sure I can swim much further than that now. :-)
