About Me

I am the Head of Technology at Breakthrough Media where I run the team of software developers and digital project managers. Our focus is primarily LAMP stack based technology, however over the past year I have helped the team move away from WordPress and jQuery development to more general development.

The team now works with a wide variety of technology including Vue.js, vanilla JavaScript, PHP frameworks such as Laravel and Symfony, and Python. In addition to this we are beginning to work on data projects based around Tableau and other visualisation tools. We have also begun to introduce agile based methodologies, such as stand ups, retrospectives and tech talks to improve communication and innovation.

Prior to Breakthrough Media I worked as a freelance software developer for a number of agencies including BBH, Wolff Olins, WTG and WebCredible. The work ranged from private to public sector and focused on areas such as digital marketing and web development. Along with this I have run my own business which found success in 2012-13 when I released a social media analytics app, that has been used by over 1 million people, and then sold part of my business.

I have strong communication skills, having regularly presented talks in both business and public settings. In addition while at WebCredible I spent four years running their HTML and CSS training courses.
