In late 2018 I moved on from over a decade's employment with a BAFTA winning children's digital media agency, in order to continue developing interactive products in a freelance capacity. 

A long-standing Technical Director in my last placement, I'm a client-facing programmer with proven skills in (and deep understanding of) both technological and visual creative domains. An experienced, practical all-rounder in digital media product development, I have a particular leaning toward coding games, websites and mobile apps using web technologies (HTML5 and Javascript). I'm no stranger to the entire interactive development process, and have been involved from concepting, all the way through production, to post-release maintenance on countless digital projects over the last fourteen years.

Most recently I've worked with the following:

- PlayCanvas (3D WebGL), Pixi, and Phaser game engines
- Javascript developement (ES5 and ES6), including build tooling development in Node
- Developing online games for children's broadcasters: the BBC, Turner, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network
- Re-engineering existing games to add localistion support, and redeploying as hybrid apps via Cordova
- Full stack development on several WordPress websites
- Maintaining a long running cross-platform app store product developed in Adobe AIR (Flash/ActionScript3)
- Maintenance of various cross-platform app store products developed using Unity (C#)
- Converting HTML5 games to run in the context of a television 'set-top box'

If you think I might be able to help out in servicing technical development requirements on a product, or else you need an experienced consultant for any 'creative' idea involving technology and interactivity, please get in touch; I'd be happy to help out in any way I can.
