Full stack web developer with over 8 years of professional experience working as both part of a team and independently.

SO Marketing (2013 - 2018)

I am the developer on multiple projects, for a variety of clients, including WordPress, Magento & internal apps.


I used Laravel for all internal apps at the company. This included slowly migrating a legacy app into a Laravel app.

Using Laravel allowed me to use some of it's great features such as queues (with Redis), task scheduling & storing data in cache.


I worked with React when rebuilding the current website, it's run as a single page application using CSS modules.

The site is then server side rendered for great performance and SEO benefits.


I used VueJS with pretty much every Laravel app created as it makes it easy to add some interactivity into a static page.

Magento (1.x)
Forward Thinker Developments (2010 - 2013)

I was the lead developer on various projects including creating custom CMS websites.
