 Work Experience

Circle Interactive

Circle Interactive, Web Developer, Jul 2016 ~ Present

PHP & JS Development - CiviCRM - Drupal - Wordpress - UI Prototyping - SASS - Git - NGINX

Notable libraries & frameworks: React & Symphony

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).

Cap2 Solutions

Cap2 Solutions Ltd, Web Developer, Sep 2014 ~ Jun 2016

PHP & JS Development - Unit Testing - UI Prototyping - Support - Git - IIS & Apache

Notable libraries & frameworks: Angular & Symphony

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.

Nokia Siemens Networks

PHP & JS Development - Ruby Environment Testing - 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.

 Portfolio Snippets


I made a tool that allows you to safely share sensitive data within the workplace. It can be used for any private credentials but is primarily used for passwords.


A nifty sharing and bookmarking tool. It’s great for sharing resources between different social networks, without forgetting any of your links.
