Hi, I'm Andy

I'm a freelance web developer experienced in building CMS based web sites and web apps

If you're looking for a web developer in London and Hampshire, you're in the right place. Since starting out as a developer in 2012, I've worked on a wide range of projects with an equally diverse set of clients, from top brands to local businesses and schools.

During this time I've picked up a wide variety of skills, covering HTML/CSS/Javascript, up to PHP/MySQL and Wordpress theme development/integration. Together with a background in design and animation, I'm comfortable with contributing to web design and UI/UX on projects and I find it helps me work better with designers to migrate their ideas into a living project.

Skills

I started my career as a front-end developer, but since 2014 I've moved into working closely with CMS based web applications and Wordpress development.

These days my work is split 50/50; working with CMS sites, and database driven applications. On the front end I'm normally developing javascript based web applications or templates for apps/CMS sites.

  • Wordpress site/themes/plugin development
  • ExpressionEngine templates, module development and maintenance

  • Site/module architecture + database planning
  • Git/Bitbucket

Front-end:

  • HTML5/CSS3
  • Vanilla javascript/jQuery
  • React.js
  • Responsive web design/development
  • CSS Preprocessors: SASS/SCSS
    CSS Methodology: BEM, SMACCS
  • CSS Frameworks: Bootstrap, Inuit, Foundation
  • Taskrunners: Grunt/Gulp
  • Web design, UI/UX design

About me

I enjoy learning new things and have a particular passion for language learning and creative pursuits such as photography, drawing and cooking. My experiences of studying Japanese and teaching English in Japan have left me with a keen interest in sharing knowledge and helping people to learn new things and connect with each other in new ways.

In addition to web development and expanding my knowledge, I enjoy developing my fitness with calisthenics, endurance running and Krav Maga. In my free time I like to pursue photography, study languages, play the guitar, read books, and cook.
