What I do

What I do


ASP.NET, WebForms, MVC and WebAPI

Started developing for the web using Classic ASP which naturally evolved into programming in C# for WebForms, MVC and WebAPI 2. Having programmed in JSP prior to the release of C# helped inform my development.

JavaScript and jQuery

Comfortable with programming in vanilla JavaScript or using frameworks such as jQuery. I can adapt to most JavaScript frameworks quickly, even to develop games.

HTML, CSS and Bootstrap

A responsive user interface which works across all modern browsers on all screens requires an excellent knowledge of CSS and HTML. However, I am just at home with raw CSS, and often use SASS where appropriate.

Microsoft SQL Server

I've been using MS SQL Server since version 6.5 on Windows NT 4 Servers. So not only can I do LINQ, but also Stored Procedures. This general knowledge has put me in good stead with MySQL too.

Examples of Work


Finance on-brand

Changed an application consisting of a single ASP.NET 3.5 WebForm page mimicking a WebAPI which called by a single html, CSS and JavaScript files. This is now a modular application with multiple HTML and JavaScript files calling multiple WebAPI 2 controllers. Also used Aspose and VSTO to manipulate MS Office documents.

SaaS for Landscapes

Merged 3 separate websites using Classic ASP, VB.NET and C# into a single SaaS solution. Continue to support and improving the application along with server maintenance/updates via remote desktop. I also look after the marketing website which uses Wordpress and MySQL.

JavaScript Games

Created a JavaScript game for a marketing campaign. I have extensive experience making interactive experiences using web based technologies. For this I used the Phaser framework and wrote the code so it was all configurable through simple text files. I did this so the client would be able to update the assets used. I have developed a lot of Flash in the past, so this knowledge has informed much of my JavaScript game development.

Responsive UI

Having worked closely with designers and creatives, I am able to interpreted designs to produce a responsive website using hand coded HTML and CSS. I have done this several times for design agencies and their clients.

Online calculations

Updated elements of the website for A/B testing. I also incorporated additional functionality, enabling the user to fine tune their inputs, so resultant calculation would be more accurate. The site is used on a daily basis via a subscription model

Umbraco integrated

Working with a fellow developer to create a product catalogue based website using Umbraco CMS as its core. I created the CSS, Umbraco templates & document types for this project. I also integrated other projects into the site.

Commercial search

Marketing agency, created a multilingual estate agent website specialised in the sales of commercial properties. For this I worked on the HTML, CSS and the search functionality.

FMCG marketing

Well known FMCG brand website to capture consumer preference. I have done a number of these sites for the largest global house hold brands, with various functionality, including winning wrapper code checking.
