A passionate web developer with over ten years commercial experience in the internet sector. Hard working individual with good interpersonal skills.
An advocate of web standards, web accessibility and the open source movement, interested in usability to create a sound user experience.
Experience building custom websites using content management systems with back-end solutions to deliver first class projects.
In addition to this, I have planned and delivered projects using Scrum and Agile software development methodologies. I use version control software such as Subversion / Git, I am familiar with Drupal development technologies such as Drush and I particularly like using Linux OS and the BASH shell.
I am a proud husband and father of two children. I enjoy all kinds of music, especially heavy metal and I love watching live performances.
Being outdoors and getting involved in outdoor activities is something I've done since I was young and active in the Scout movement; I love camping and practising bush craft skills as well as cooking on an open fire.
To keep fit I am a regular climber at my local bouldering gym and like hiking and walking whenever possible.
At home I enjoy being in my garden, I like to grow wild flowers, soft fruit and vegetables. I am a home brewer and have a brewery setup which I use to develop and explore various beers styles that are in line with the BJCP guidelines.
