Experience

Since beginning work at SYPO in 2017, I have been leading development on a number of bespoke projects built around the Laravel framework, making use of Vue.js for the frontend. More recently, I have led development on a number of successful and heavily trafficked Laravel projects for clients including Co-op and Samsung, among others.

I have experience in taking projects through from conception to completion, working with clients to bring their designs and ideas to life in time and on budget.

In addition to my day job, I also spent a number of years working with a local charity, initially on an informal basis providing occasional tech support and assistance with website maintenance. I provided regular support with the use of social media, and in 2017 I was nominated to become a member of the Management Committee of the charity - a position I held until the unfortunate closure of the charity in 2020.
