About MeFreelance web developer with extensive experience gained across a broad range of industries


I’ve spent the last 17 or so years in I.T. and worked freelance for many different companies, both large and small! I have a BSc(Hons) in Information Technology from the University of Manchester and I’m Microsoft qualified, being both an MCAD/MCP and I’m also a Certified Scrum Master as well as an Umbraco Certified Developer.

I've worked on some huge projects wthin the banking sector, at HBOS, Barclays Technology Services & Lloyds TSB Commercial Finance. I've also worked with some big name brands such as National Grid, Tarmac, Post Office, Servelec, St Modwen, The NEC Group, Oxford University, Ingersoll RandBoots, Astra Zeneca, Eversheds and Bury College but I'm also at home with smaller companies including new media agencies where the work is more varied and frenetic!

I have gained extensive commercial experience developing ASP.Net websites in many different fields including food, retail, new media, banking, finance, legal & pharmaceutical, and have a passion for projects large or small, web or desktop. I have worked for some of the UK’s leading Microsoft consultancies and I’m a member of the ICS DreamTeam and I often gain repeat work through forming long-standing business relationships, as I offer commitment and a professional cost-effective service. 

They’re not the only things I’ve done - I also have a national forklift licence; spent 3 years as a Food Scientist working on Ribena and Lucozade; created 3D models for Flight Simulators using 3D Studio Max and Photoshop and my first job was working in McDonalds flipping burgers!

I’m now freelance as a web developer and help my wife run her own food business, www.bibijis.com.
