I'm a Freelance Full-Stack Web Developer using PHP, Symfony, and Magento. I specialise in building highly scalable, high availability web applications and websites. As a "full-stack" developer I have a very large skill set, and pride myself on developing using the best and most modern web development techniques.
With over 12 years commercial programming experience, I'm excellent at what I do, and have been developing and programming for over 18 years in total. Always looking for ways to improve and learn new techniques, I'm continually adapting my skills to master new technologies.
I thrive on building web applications, using best programming standards and practices to create highly maintainable and readable code.
I'm a confident, friendly character who is comfortable working solely on projects or within a team environment.
My specialties are Symfony2, PHP 5.4+, MySQL, MongoDB, NoSQL, Web Application Development, Android App Development, Symfony 1.x, Magento, Java, and much, much more...
Just a few things I love outside of work are: Football, Formula 1, Gadgets, Dogs, and of course my loving girlfriend.
I'm not sure what I did wrong in a past life but I'm a Leeds United fan, through the heights of Champions League semi-finals (seems like so long ago), to the lows of struggling to get out of League 1.
I love watching the Formula 1, and have been a long time supporter of Williams and McLaren, and my favourite driver is the awesome Jenson Button, with Lewis Hamilton coming a close second.
Technology is obviously a big part of my life in work, but I also love to have the latest Android phone, tablet, and Android Wear watch. Around my house you can also find a Nest Thermostat, Nest Protest smoke alarms, big screen smart TVs, Chromecasts, etc.
