About

I am an experienced App developer with several mobile applications available in both the App Store and Play Store, with downloads currently totalling in the thousands. I have strong skills in both design and development. As a freelance developer, the majority of my work has been individual, requiring a range of skills and good time management. Whilst working for agencies I have often worked with a team of developers, usually as a lead to manage the resources effectively.
