I can help you with


My primary passion is writing code, or more specifically, crafting solutions to technical problems and challenges. I've many years experience working with object-oriented MVC PHP frameworks, predominately Laravel & CakePHP.

I’ve experience with all the usual full-stack tools and languages; HTML5, CSS3, SQL & Javascript and good experience with the Angular & Express JS frameworks. My Laravel frontend experience is focused on Livewire & AlpineJS rather than VueJS. I've experience with Puppeteer to build 'automated workers' as well as using the Ionic framework (Angular + AWS Amplify) for mobile applications.


I've comprehensive experience with Amazon Web Services; CI/CD/DevOps, security best practices, infrastructure deployment and management. I use Docker for containerisation and am constantly using git, PHPUnit, MariaDB/MySQL/Aurora/Sqlite. I can work with Azure, Vultr and other cloud-native infrastructurte providers.


I have worked for various marketing communications agencies (Pearson Davis, Lowe, Ammirati Puris Lintas, Zentropy) in their nascent online/digital departments prior to and after graduating from Auckland University of Technology (Bachelor of Business Marketing/Management 1997), a year with IBM New Zealand (1997) and then in London (APL/Zentropy).

In those roles and in the years since I've worked with a range of clients from small startups to large multinational corporations assisting with IT projects and developments..
