A little bit about me...
I’m a Vancouver based designer and developer from England.
I’ve focused on creating exceptional websites for 5 years, helping clients around the world succeed online. More recently I’ve expanded my abilities into SEO, web performance and consulting clients on web related problems.
I started designing web interfaces in 2006-07, which as much as I enjoyed, it didn’t mean much unless I could actually build them and have people experience them. Thus in 2007 I decided to learn how to create and develop websites, eventually taking it into a freelance career to support my time through college and university.
As of 2014 I’ve focused on refining my current skill set and developing the skills required to build fast, aesthetic, creative web apps that put a strong focus on the user experience. Currently I’m working on developing two web apps (one SEO related product, another an e-commerce solution) based on a MEAN stack.
Why MEAN? Well clearly from the start I needed the power and flexibility of a MVC framework on both the front and back end (Angular and Express). Running on a node (express) server, it’s very fast compared to a LAMP solution and allows me to keep data as JSON throughout the entire stack. I’m also testing a similar solution, which would be an Angular base running on a static host, connecting to Firebase as a backend. Lot’s of testing ahead for me!
