I am a freelance front end web developer, photographer, and video producer based in Bournemouth, Dorset, UK. I have worked in the creative industry and digital media for most of my career with over 15 years of commercial experience. I’ve worked alongside creative and technical teams on large-scale web projects as well as project managing and coordinating digital teams. Over that time I have worked on a huge range of projects for clients big and small. I am a Bournemouth Arts Institute Graphic Design / Interactive Media BA (Hons) graduate with a broad understanding of today’s digital landscape.
I love shooting engaging photo and video content and bringing it all together into slick, responsive websites. The thing I champion the most is making your website work for you. Almost everyone has one, but a lot of people don’t see the potential in a website or know how to effectively harness leads and conversions through it using organic and paid traffic. That is where I can help.
Feel free to drop me an email with any questions, work, or collaborative ideas you may have. You can see a full list of the services I offer here.
A little more about me
My career so far has consisted of multidisciplinary roles. Working for smaller companies in the past has meant that I have needed to split my time between being a front end developer and working in photography and video production.
I personally think there is a big benefit to having somebody who is able to handle all aspects of a digital project. Often the points of failure come from a lack of communication between sales, creatives, and tech. I know what works in certain sectors and I will always push to optimise and tighten margins.
I am a big advocate of quality content creation, mobile-first design and responsive website builds. A rich but fast-loading mobile experience is essential on modern websites. By not catering to mobile users you are potentially shutting out a huge user base, as this is how a lot of people use the web. Website optimisation is also something I find very important when catering to a growing mobile audience.
