What I do:

Precision Management

I'm a good listener and communicator. I understand business needs and can distil them in to a clear architectural vision. I then produce a timely and workable plan and drill down to the detail level to engineer a high-quality result.

Frontend Development

Mobile-first delivery of responsive, usable and performant apps is what I love. I'm focussed on what works best for the client and how to deliver that quickly, consistently and to a high standard using agile methodlogy and build/release automation.
