About

Hi, I'm Andrew, a Web Developer and aspiring Product/Project Manager. I completed my MSc in Web Development in 2010 and have a First Class BSc in Internet Computing with Mathematics.

For the first 4 years of my career, I developed websites for a variety of clients as a sole trader. In early 2011, I also joined a team working on a playlist creation website called SoundtrackToYour which became the main project I was working on at the time.

In 2014 I joined the software development team at ITN in London where I have worked on a number of projects including:

  • the development of a Generation Y news website;
  • the maintenance and feature development of their news archive website ITN Source;
  • development a new ingest service for video clips;
  • updated and maintained workflows;
  • taken over the development of a new internal service for searching, downloading and editing videos;
  • and many other updates to smaller projects.

In 2015, I joined a team of people to help form a new charity to support the education of underprivileged children in Uganda. I took on the task of building/managing the charity's website as well as building the branding and designing various promotional material. I have also run a couple of successful events for the charity and hope to do more in the future.

I have experience writing C# code mainly for websites with an MVC architecture, but also in maintaining/developing further a couple of websites built on an old version of Umbraco. I also have some experience working with workflows to process large numbers of video ingests. I enjoy building the front end of websites and working with CMS and eCommerce systems (mainly Drupal). I have also in the past built websites from scratch with PHP. I work hard to produce websites the correct way, to ensure that they will be easy to use, future proofed, accessible and mobile friendly. I always strive to produce the most efficient and clean solution possible.

Andrew has been an absolute find for us at soundtracktoyour.com. His UI design skills, creative streak and knowledge of HTML and Javascript have made him a first rate web developer. He also has rapidly adapted to other new technologies, which in the case of our project were C#, MVC ASP.NET using an Object Relational Model. A true software engineer backed up by a can-do attitude, a rarity these days in the computing business.

I'm always looking to put my skills to good use in new ways: through different technologies, different industries and different experiences.
