I am a web developer (programmer). I specialise in building PHP websites, mainly with WordPress, and applications, mainly with Laravel, but I have experience in a range of other technologies as well. I also manage the Linux web servers and lead the PHP development team.
Building websites has been my hobby since I was 12, and I have been doing it professionally since 2006. I joined Alberon in March 2008 and became senior developer in 2011. I have a BSc (first class) in Computer Science from The University of Warwick.
I spend my spare time tinkering with my own websites, taking photos with my DSLR camera and (when the weather’s nice and I’m not feeling too lazy!) cycling or running.
My experience includes:
Frameworks: Laravel, Symfony, CakePHP, Zend Framework, Ruby on Rails
Content Management Systems: WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, CMSMS, several bespoke systems
Databases: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft Access
Miscellaneous: HTML5, CSS3, Sass (SCSS), jQuery, Linux server administration (Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS)
