10 Years+ Experience

I have a huge range of projects under my belt, from full website builds to modifying and updating legacy code. I love new challenges, and I’m happy to dig through errors and quirks so find out what’s going on under the hood and help you reach your project goals in the best way for you.


My strongest skill is PHP, and I’m happy to work with raw code, a range of PHP-based CMSs (including custom ones), and frameworks such as Symfony and Laravel. For specifics, please get in touch using the form below.

Discretion Guaranteed

I sign non-disclosure agreements for the majority of the work I do, and I’m always happy to protect the interests of the companies and departments I contract for as much as possible.


Whether your projects have international security implications or you just don’t want your competitors getting hold of any inside knowledge, I provide ultimate discretion as standard.

A Natural Fit For Your Team

With years of experience fitting into one-person companies and teams of national brands alike, I’m a self-starter, settle in quickly, and I’m very low maintenance – all I need is a chair and a desk!


I’m happy to work remotely, as part of your in-house team, or a combination of both; please see below for geographical restrictions.
