I build things for the internet

I’ve been involved in the creation of websites and web applications for over 15 years.

I'm currently working as Head of Frontend Dev at Havas LYNX in Manchester, I started my career as a Web Designer before quickly moving into Front-End Development. Prior to joining Havas LYNX, I worked at McCann Erickson for 3 years (including 1 year setting up their central Manchester ‘Metro’ office).

I joined Havas LYNX as a Senior Front-End Developer and for the last 3 years I have been running a team of 16 Front-End Developers specialising in HTML5, CSS3 and most of all JavaScript, utilising modern build processes such as node, sass, grunt, yeoman, assemble and angular.

I am always looking for emerging technologies to improve the development process with a view to perfecting the full stack front end development workflow.
