Programming for me is not just a career, it's also a creative outlet. I love learning and experimenting with new technologies and techniques. This helps me enhance my professional skills which can be used at work or at leisure.
I work as a software developer in Auckland and have expertise in full stack development. I work primarily with backend LAMP stacks utilising popular backend frameworks Laravel, Symfony, Wordpress, Shopify and have solid front-end skills including strong knowledge of popular frameworks and libraries such as Angular and Jquery.
Freelance Web Developer / Oct 2017 - Present / Self Employed
Auckland, New Zealand
Front End & Back End Developer / 2014 - Oct 2017 / MEA Mobile
I worked within the digital agency MEA where my role is primarily a developer but slips somewhat into some client relationship management. The role has served me well not only growing as a developer but also honing often overlooked aspects (from the perspective of a developer) such as accurate scoping, team management skills and client communication relationships.
Development skills and tools I have utilised in this role range from Wordpress / Silverstripe CMS development to robust Web APIs for mobile platform use.
Best Practise tools such as git, docker, gulp, grunt are utilised in all projects.
Technical Director / 2011 - 2014 / ScreenCast
Working as the technical director for a funded startup that produced a Saas Platform for relative consumer engagement. It utilised the latest web2.0 technologies such as real-time events with Websockets and was primarily targeted as a Television / Radio broadcasting tool. The company didn’t quite get picked up in NZ but the lessons in business and technology project management were invaluable.
