I have over a decade of experience creating websites, managing web teams and training developers. I've ran into enough issues that I will be of benefit to your project.
I've worked for some amazing companies through the years and I am ready to take the value I've provided one company at a time and share it with more folk!
I am passionate about the web. When I work with you it won't be repeat business on the line, it will be my reputation as someone who makes the web better. I will not let you down.
Services I offer
I offer a wide range of services, all focused around delivering value to a web project.
I have a passion for solving business problems, putting in place great teams and giving them the required direction.
Specifically I can help with;
- Working out the product roadmap
- Who the first technical hires should be
- Planning how the engineering culture could look
- Helping with the hiring process (including for a full time CTO if that makes sense)
- Putting good development practices into the business from the get go
- Analysing the technical landscape and the current toolsets being used
- Turning tech talk into English when speaking to investors
- Using my network to help the business wherever I can

I've worked on highly available, well trafficked Rails applications with millions in revenue going through them. I know the importance of writing clean code that is understandable and gets the job done well.
My writing has been featured in places like Ruby Weekly several times. I write about Ruby and related subjects.
You can read more on my Ruby Contractor London page.
I love writing, in fact I have a whole section of articles dedicated to the topic.
I've written books and for some of the best publications in the business, I would be happy to write for yours.
More recently in my career I have been tasked with passing on my knowledge to more junior developers. Through workshops and one on one sessions I am able to help accelerate understanding of a subject. I leave the learner less confused and more confident than when we started.
I'm a standard nerd. I get excited by tech and like to makes people's lives easier with it. If there is something you think will get me excited and think I would be a good fit, lets chat.
I also do Double Entendre as a Service
