Hello. I'm a web person based in Manchester, UK. I mainly do user experience, information architecture and usability testing work, and have previously been a front end developer and designer. I have well over a decade of experience, and am passionate about making easy to use, attractive and well converting 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
- Had a beautiful baby daughter (my wife did some of the work here) and started teaching her all the important things in life like how record players work, and what charity-shop-bargain-box vinyl to play on them
- Bought Caban Casita, a 70s retro Welsh holiday cabin
- Travelled less (see point 1). Over the past few of years I've been to, among others, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Laos, New York City (twice), Vietnam, trekked to see wild Gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda, and spent some time working in Singapore and Australia
- Got worryingly obsessed with vintage telephones (which I renovate and sell)
- Fallen in love with screen printing
- Got a warm glow from working on a projects that might actually make a difference in the world - the Oxfam website, and The Woodland Trust
