I am a software engineer & web developer from Falkirk, Scotland. I currently work with the BBC in their Voice + AI team developing apps for platforms such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Home etc. Previously I worked at Everyone — a digital agency in the Merchant City, Glasgow and Optical Express as a developer with their online team..

I am equally capable and interested in both front and back-end development. I have experience in working full stack on a range of responsive projects over the entire life cycle from small simple sites to large systems with complex bespoke functionality. On a daily basis I use HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL. I heavily use Gulp & Sass, and have experience with Grunt & Webpack. I also have experience in both consuming and developing API’s, as well as maintaining Linux systems. Additionally, I am familiar with ES6 and associated tooling.

As far as the web goes, things are always changing. I embrace change and find the evolution of technology very exciting. I never stand still, always looking for ways to improve and new things to learn. I want to learn and be the best I can be, creating things that are the best they can be. I have an interest in SEO, analytics and marketing since they all affect the performance and success of the projects we work on. I love working with and learning from the specialists in those areas. Building for the web has become a passion, much more than a job.

When not working on projects I spend a lot of my free time reading blogs and experimenting with new things. I listen to rock music. I watch football and Formula 1. I’m a big fan of cars in general (an engineering thing) and I’m a proud owner of a limited edition 2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra — the fabled “Terminator Cobra.”

Some of the brands I have worked with include Toto Energy, Cycling Scotland, Mercat Tours, STV, Disney, Lex Autolease, Optical Express and many more. You can find more detailed information on my portfolio. If you’d like to discuss a project then I’d be more than happy to hear from you.
