In 1999 I did my first Hello World! That was in Java, at the beginning of a Computer Science MSc. (Conversion). My first degree was in Biology, which I took as a mature student after working in horticulture research.

After battling away with my first programming language I then spent some time working with data in the plant science world at Nottingham University – so tech in the form of MySQL databases and Perl, but not really web development. During this time I gradually moved more into web dev, converting a table based layout site into a site that used CSS for layout – the beginning of the modern web I like to think.

I moved on to using Content Management Systems such as Drupal at Kew Gardens, MVC frameworks such as CodeIgnitor, and more recently WordPress.

And now

I have been working as a freelance web developer since November 2020.

I build websites mostly in WordPress, from single to multi-page brochure sites for individuals and businesses with an option to include a fully functioning online shop.

Tech wise I’m working on improving my knowledge and experience of Javascript and I’ve started learning frameworks and content platforms such as Gatsby, Sanity, React, Redwood.js and Laravel.
