My freelance web development story
Originally hailing from Sheffield in Yorkshire, I now call Leicester, UK, home with my wife and two kids. My professional journey has been predominantly shaped by a 25-year career in web development, constituting 99% of my working life.
Commencing my web development career in Nottingham, I dedicated six years as a senior developer at Broadband Communications Ltd. During this tenure, I not only contributed to various system developments but also authored a book titled “Foundation Coldfusion for Flash.” This book, aimed at guiding experienced flash developers on database connections using Coldfusion, found its place on the shelves at Waterstones for a while.
The turning point came while driving to witness a Lemon Jelly concert at the Birmingham Academy. I made the courageous leap from a salaried position to freelance, expecting a period of networking and pitching. Contrary to expectations, work has been consistently flowing, and I hope it continues (touch wood).
With 25 years of experience in the field, I offer a depth of expertise that goes beyond the ordinary, encompassing a profound understanding of industry trends, best practices, and a proven track record of successful projects. As a seasoned consultant, I provide more than just knowledge; I bring a personalised approach, dedicating time and focus specifically to your needs, ensuring a tailored solution closely aligned with your business objectives.
Unlike larger agencies, my individual consulting service is marked by cost efficiency and greater flexibility. With a streamlined structure, we can work closely together, minimising communication gaps and ensuring efficient decision-making.
