Originally from the northern suburbs of Manchester, I stayed near to home by studying Computing and Geography at The University of Manchester. My hobby at uni was learning PHP and web technologies and after I graduated in 2006 I went looking for a web development job. After a short spell at a city centre design agency I made the move to Access in 2007. I quickly picked up the bug for Drupal and developed several large sites from start to finish. As our digital team grew I found myself focusing more and more on front-end development. Recently, I’ve expanded my role in to user experience design by working closely with our designers to produce usable and beautiful websites. As well as websites, I also look after the office plants and do some of our internal photography.
