Junior Software Engineer at Nokia Siemens Networks

PHP JavaScript Ruby Subversion Apache

Working at Nokia Siemens Networks as part of my gap year was incredibly beneficial to my growth in web development. I strengthened the depth of my knowledge within a variety of languages and became accustomed to working techniques. I became very confident in my ability to work cooperatively with a team and in expressing beneficial ideas.

August 2012

Graduated from the University of the West of England

Web design principles UX design Information architecture Data schemas Consultancy management

When I began studying web design at university, it was my first big step towards being where I am today. I'm very proud to have achieved a bachelor's degree (2:1), that acted as a gateway into a web programming career and I made many friends along the way.

Junior Developer at CAP2 Solutions

PHP JavaScript Unit testing Client support Git Apache

Working in a small team in an agile environment gave me the opportunity to build upon my existing skill set and taught me deeply important time-management skills. A hands-on approach allowed me to grow quickly, especially since I was fortunate enough to work alongside more experienced developers. Their expertise was invaluable as I fulfilled feature requests for a sports management system.

Developer at Circle Interactive

PHP React CiviCRM Drupal Wordpress Nginx

Circle Interactive was my introduction to multi-site working, which was something that I had not experienced in previous companies. Performing development for numerous clients on a daily basis has been an excellent learning experience because I have learned how to juggle their different goals and requirements. I quickly grew into my role and enjoyed working on new projects monthly, especially because I was given the platform to learn React (a long-term aspiration of mine).

July 2016

Moved to New York

Moving across the globe to be with my significant other has been challenging, but worth it. The sacrifice of having to leave my previous job position was inevitable. I am now pursuing future career options after receiving work authorization and studying web development until then.

July 2019

Senior Developer at Heartbeat

PHP React Contentful Storyblok Symfony Azure

Heartbeat was my introduction into working with American health care & very large on-going projects. Acting as project lead and having to actively meet strict MLR deadlines has taught me the full importance of time efficiency and organization.
