I taught myself to program when I was eight years old and progressed from there to graduate from the University of Aberdeen in two thousand with a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Computing Science. I have a broad range of experience in the IT industry from front line support to embedded development with almost everything in between. I believe this broad range of exposure to all areas of the IT industry can give me a unique perspective on problems and projects and that I can sometimes come up with a solution that a specialist may not even consider.
In September two thousand and ten I decided to go freelance so I could work at home to give me more time to spend with my then one year old daughter and to allow me to focus on developing solutions for the ever changing web.
In programming it's not the specific language or framework that's important, it's being able to understand what you are using and, almost as important, being able to explain it to the client. With my wide range of experience on projects of all sizes I can tackle anything from a small change to an established project, to a full database driven, dynamic web site, using a variety of technologies.
Below are the technologies that I specialise in but if nothing quite fits, contact me and I will be more than happy to discuss your requirements and see what I can offer.
