I'm a freelance software contractor living in Scotland with a love for solving tricky problems with code. I have a strong coding ability in both algorithms and architecture, a good sense of UX design/aesthetics, and can talk business as well as tech.
Over the years I've built complex web applications, large content managed websites, an iPhone game or two, and helped the Scottish Government keep track of its sheep. I've also written a bunch of open source software, some of which is used by a site or two you may have heard of.
