Portfolio


As a full-stack developer I'm capable of working on websites from the design and front-end, information architecture and user experience, all the way through to the server development. I've spent many years mastering Javascript and I work really well with PHP & Laravel. I'm also learning Swift and playing around with AI & NLP.


Since university, I’ve been working at an engineering company developing software and we’ve created our company Sendtao (www.sendtao.com) which solved one of their big management issues; The app has been used in 13 countries in Africa so far, with more than 6600 forms have been submitted to date, including more than 92,000 photos (155GB!)

Working many roles as the web developer, server developer, architect, customer support, designer gave me a lot of experience, I learned a lot about all aspects of how a startup works and what it takes to build and run real world software projects.

The masters project was Plotty — a distributed seed-bank powered by NodeJS to protect and preserve the world's supply of rare and diverse seeds.

Examples of work I’m looking for are:

  • Shorter freelance jobs,
  • Larger projects where you just need help a few hours a week,
  • Startup & idea prototypes where you need that require full stack.

Contact work developing a tool to analyse risk in the fashion industry and textiles supply chain.

“T-REXS is a tool to support you in the identification and prioritisation of social, environmental and corruption risks in your textile supply chains. Risk analysis is a fundamental part of any company’s due diligence, and therefore also a key requirement for members of the Textile Partnership.”

The project involved ReactJS front-end work, using Redux and localStorage. The website is also bilingual and was carefully designed so that no-data was stored or sent to the server in order to keep company supply chain data private.
