at the office

Since January 2011 I have gained valuable experience as a member of three different development teams, working on a variety of projects:

  • User interviews and observation
  • UI/UX/visual design
  • Front-end development
  • Supporting a variety of sites and applications
  • Scrum / Agile processes
  • Managing projects and revenue planning

With seven years prior experience of close collaboration with clients I am able to listen, understand and communicate in a clear, friendly and professional style.

Always seeking to improve my understanding of the technology beneath the HTML, CSS and JavaScript, I feel most at home designing and building user-centred sites and applications through research, prototyping, observation and iteration.
