Whilst I primarily work with backend web technologies, like PHP, I think of myself as a hybrid web developer by utilizing my skills for both front and backend as well as keeping in touch with my creative side designing websites, logos and icons. For example; everything you see on this site I have designed & developed.

I work on LEMP, LAMP and WISP environments and pride myself on my ability to use multiple frameworks, such as; Laravel, Symfony, CodeIgniter and FuelPHP, aside from those I've got great experience in hand coding and bug fixing in native PHP. Check out my RSS Reader which was built with no frameworks or packages.

An existing system written in procedural PHP (5.x) was required to be modernized. The task was to re-develop using Laravel 10, and simplify the implementation to allow for new features to be added once re-built. This is a multi-tenancy platform which integrates directly with the Home Office to submit DBS checks on behalf of organisation's employees. The front and back-end have been rebuilt from the ground up, and a comprehensive test suite was developed comprising of over 1,000 individual test cases.
