About Me

I'm a front end web developer who loves building accessible, user friendly websites, crafting, and birds. I can be found learning about the latest web technologies, cycling along the seafront, or singing with The Dulcetones. I was touched by a humboldt penguin at Artis, Amsterdam, and have been elated ever since.

I graduated from the University of Sussex with a Masters degree in Computing with Digital Media, and for the past 6 years have been developing websites in Brighton and London.

I am available for freelance work.

Buy My Audi

Buy My Audi

Buy My Audi is a product that allows customers to view a wide range of brand new, unregistered Audi's already in stock. Once the customer has chosen a vehicle it can be reserved online, and they can then choose to apply for finance with Volkswagen Financial Services.

VWFS required an update to the look and feel of Buy My Audi, as well as some functional changes based on feedback from UX workshops. My task was to update the styling and design new elements based on the provided Sketch designs, and update the existing Angular project with new functionality. As my first Angular project this was an exciting challenge and a great learning experience.
