> Me.About
Hi. I'm a coder with a head for business. More specifically I am an applications developer particularly experienced in building usable, high performing web applications.

I also have experience in project management and business process consultancy from public & private sectors, and also a healthy dose of managerial experience from the retail sector. I have witnessed a lot of good, and a lot of bad applications, so I feel I have an insight into what it takes to deliver system requirements on time and on budget.

I'm British born currently living in Helsinki with my wife and young family. I like to code for work and for pleasure so I am also always interested to hear about your charitable development projects, and discuss how I could help, get in touch!

Please check out my GitHub profile below, all projects are publically available for use or rework;

As a child of the 80's video games have always been a part of life, and continue to be so, I'm a gamer and proud of it!

I love homelife, cooking good food, drinking good wine, watching good movies and relaxing with my wife.

I make sure I get to the gym regulary, and love to play tennis in the summer.
