Originally a Yorkshire lad from Sheffield, I now live in Leicester, UK, with my wife and two kids. Web development has pretty much accounted for 99% of my working life.

My web development career began in Nottingham, where I started working for Broadband Communications Ltd (currently known as Souk Ltd) as senior developer for 6 years. During this time, I developed a whole host of systems, and even had a book published entitled “Foundation Coldfusion for Flash”. The book taught experienced flash developers how to connect to databases using Coldfusion, this was before flash remoting appeared. You cannot get a copy anymore, but for a while, I had a book for sale in Waterstones!

Whilst driving down to watch Lemon Jelly, at the Birmingham Academy, I decided to leave the comfort of a salary and brave freelancing. I prepared myself for a quiet period where I would spend most of my time networking and pitching for work. I was wrong. There has not been a moment when I have not had work, and (touch wood) long may it continue.

The secret is the way I have built up a long list of skills, OK, you can describe me as a jack of all trades, but this has kept me in good stead. My main strength is in the way I can turn my hand to pretty much any tool, language or system in both server and client side development. Truth be told, it is what I thrive on, the challenge of taking on something new and delivering to a high standard.
