Jul 2014–Nov 2021 Making digital transformations at Fueled  Jump to heading

Roles
Lead Frontend Engineer (I–III), Senior Frontend Developer, Web Developer, Web Designer

Core tech
React, Vue, JavaScript, HTML, Scss

Having spent the better part of a decade at Fueled, I worked on a wide range of projects with clients including Apple, Tony Robbins, Vanity Fair, Pinterest, ServiceLink, Bigpoint, Omstars, and Vizzy.

One of the biggest projects was the 2017 rebranding and the introduction of a design system. I worked closely with the creative director to architect a scalable component library that is still widely used today.

I transitioned from a web designer to a solely frontend role soon after joining in 2015, helped grow with the team, and was a driving force in the inception of a Web Engineering Department. I had the great honour of mentoring and managing some fantastic engineers, and thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

Since 2009 Freelancing & more  Jump to heading

After graduating I was approached by the University of Reading who were looking for a creative developer to improve the applicant funnel of the university website. I worked with a small team to realign the design with the upcoming brand change, and to rebuild the core pages to be more versatile and more widely applicable across the university website. It is still in use today on the library homepage and other integral parts of the prospective student journey.

In a freelance capacity; I’ve built agency web presences for Kickpush, rebranded sports journalists like Hotspur Related, and in 2013 I recorded an Envato Tuts+ course on Responsive web design techniques. Other clients include Unifie, and Lion & Lamb Lodge.

There are also fun side projects – like my dad’s pizza recipe birthday microsite and a most important LEGO naming pointer.
