Hello. I'm a web person based in Manchester, UK. I mainly do user experience, information architecture and usability work, and have previously been a front end developer and designer. I have over a decade of experience, and am passionate about making easy to use, attractive and accessible websites for interesting and engaged organisations and individuals.
I have worked with a huge variety of clients from startups to schools to multinationals. The people I've been involved in projects with include Oxfam, The Woodland Trust, Travis Perkins, BBC, TUI, Auto Trader, First Group, Philips Healthcare, the Australian Treasury, Leeds University Equality Service, John Rylands Library, People's History Museum, and a tiny holiday cabin in Wales.
Some interesting things I've done in the last year or two
- Had a beautiful baby daughter (my wife did most of the work here) and started bringing her up in the world
- Bought Caban Casita, a 70s retro Welsh holiday cabin (and built it's website)
- Travelled less (see the first point, above). Over the past couple of years I've been to, among others, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Laos, trekked to see wild Gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda, and worked in Singapore and Australia
- Got worryingly obsessed with vintage telephones (which I renovate and sell)
- Got a warm glow from working on a project that really makes a difference in the world - the new Oxfam website, and started on another one for The Woodland Trust
