Full Stack Development

I am interested in shipping well designed, working software. I've built front end applications for startups Bugherd and Fastmail.

I have a vast amount of experience working with Rails, Node.js and Python. I care about writing high quality, well tested software and delivering value to each of my clients.

Website Review 

It’s a full breakdown of your website or application. I'll analyse the most important features in your user experience and ways you are able to improve these features. I’ll suggest changes to your applications appearance and a range of new features to add.

I’ll identify components of your application that need improvement to increase conversions. You'll receive detailed, actionable advice and strategies to improve the functionality of your site or application. 


When you hire me to work on your project, you're not just hiring a developer - you're hiring somebody to guide you throughout your project from inception to completion.

I work with clients to deliver high quality, robust, web development solutions with the purpose of enhancing their business and increasing revenue.

I'm able to develop solutions for business selling services, products and e-commerce stores. I work with clients to identify business goals and then to design and develop a digital solution to exceed those goals.


I love testing. I create unit and end to end tests for your codebase and fix any existing tests. I'll strike the perfect balance between specific and broad tests that give maximum code coverage on the hot paths of your application. I'll also create tests for the core functionality of non-critical components. I offer testing as a monthly service, for a fixed fee.
