Over the last 15 years I have worked as a front end and back end web developer, graphic designer, PPC manager, SEO manager, UAT Tester and managed various online shops covering many different industries. During this time, I have been self employed, worked both in-house and in a contractor capacity with multiple agencies, large retailers, SMEs and PLCs providing me with a plethora of experience.
I have worked on a variety of software platforms over the years including WordPress, WooCommerce, Hybris, IBM WebSphere, Magento, X Cart, CubeCart, OpenCart, Joomla, Umbraco, phpBB, Invision Power Board and lots more. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to work with a variety of management styles and currently I’m enjoy working with the Agile software development values and principles.
When I’m not creating epic websites for Boom clients, I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and walking my two dogs; Cookie who’s a shy and reserved golden retriever and Wispa, a super energetic, laser pen chasing, bulldozer of a chocolate labrador.
I have a keen interest in cars and when the weather allows I enjoy driving my little sporty number; an MG convertible. I intend to buy another fun car soon once I make more room in the garage. I also enjoy playing retro video games and I’ve amassed quite a collection, I’m also partial to watching a bit of football as well as playing five-a-side when I get the chance.
