Check out what I've done and where I came from!
"My skills have enabled me to achieve great results!"
I am, first and foremost a C# developer, working mainly within the 'web applications' sector, but I have also worked on several Desktop Applications (Winforms and WPF). Like I said I work mainly with web applications, using for the most part ASP.Net (both webforms and MVC), the projects I tend to work on a large bespoke projects that don't lend themselves to pre-packaged applications.
I obviously also build websites, I normally build these using Umbraco (including uCommerce), but I can also work with WordPress, Magento and other various platforms. In the past I have been heavily involved in the development of three different bespoke CMS and eCommerce platforms, working with the likes of JD Sports.
I work hard to keep up to date with what is going on in the world of development and digital media, and I am always tinkering with something or other. You can find some of my experiments in my portfolio, and even within this site! (Enter the Konami Code and see what happens)
