Behind The Screens
Hello! I'm Adam; a Milton Keynes based freelance web developer and web enthusiast. I started developing websites as a side hobby and quickly realised it's something I'm very passionate about.
I have worked for a number of design agencies in both lead and senior developer roles. I have successfully lead teams of developers to help deliver amazing websites for clients, whilst constantly being hands-on with development and keeping my skillset sharp.
Fun fact - I was also part of the winning Office Depot Hackathon 2017 team, where I developed a working barcode scanning iOS app in a day.
How I Work
I'm more than just a coder. I encourage early conversations so I can understand your requirements and offer my advice on how best to achieve the end solution, from a technical perspective. I also thoroughly enjoy any opportunity to talk about website architecture!
Never Compromise Quality
Designers and UX experts spend so much time and effort perfecting their designs. Most have a perfect vision of how the end product should look and feel. I want to share that vision and I'm not finished until I get that all important nod of approval from the designer.
The Development Piece
Amazing websites are created when the skills of design, development, and user experience combine. Individually we are masters of our trade but project perfection is only achieved when we collaborate. I'm the development piece of that puzzle.
I've spent years working for both in-agency and in-house companies, as a senior and lead developer, on numerous projects. During that time I've helped many people develop their skillsets by sharing my expertise. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and working with developers, creating that perfect website.
I appreciate that you may prefer me to be working in your office and I have no issue with that. I love meeting new people and working together on websites. Having the ability to talk face-to-face often makes communication so much easier for both of us. As an added benefit you'll get to enjoy my witty banter and quirky sense of humour.
Not a Robot
I'm not a robot, although I'd love to build an AI clone of myself! I strive to understand my audiences and communicate development solutions with people of all technical abilities. There's no benefit in talking a bunch of developer jargon if it's just going to overcomplicate matters.
My Spare Time
Software is constantly changing and as a developer I invest so much time understanding the latest advancements. The rapid speed at which software can change is fascinating and having the ability to leverage new technology is crucial to building future-proof websites.
During the day I dedicate my time to developing websites for clients, using my knowledge and skills to transform projects. But what most people don’t see is how I spend my personal time when not at work. For example, when I take Lola (my dog) for a walk I am listening to a podcast about web development or whenever I can I’m looking for the next web conference to attend. I have always seen web development as my hobby and I’m fortunate enough to make a living from it as well.
