A Brief History Of Me

I first started working in the industry during my second year of University, being someone who has always learned better by doing rather than listening, and being confident enough in my skills at the time to sell them, I started freelancing outside of University hours. I worked with a variety of different clients, from solicitors and photographers to heritage charities and more.

In my final year of Uni, I secured a position at an IT Solutions company ahead of my graduation where I had the chance to work across just about every creative area of that business. I became experienced in UI Design, UI Development, Graphics Design, Brand Development, and started to dabble in Backend Development - albeit to...

Project Showcase

Since most of my work does not belong to me, I'm unable to show a wide variety of projects publicly. However my showcase project, SNIPPR, encompasses my entire skillset quite nicely - from backend development to UI Design and Frontend Development. SNIPPR is designed to be the software of choice for mobile barbers and hairdressers - think Uber but for hair stylists. I came up with the idea myself a few years ago and pursued it as a passion project outside of working hours.

Firebase Backend & NodeJS API

A Firebase powered backend to drive the complex business logic of the mobile applications. Using Cloud Firestore (No-SQL DB) and Firebase Cloud Functions I designed and built the backend for SNIPPR from the ground up. The BE is accessed via a NodeJS + ExpressJS REST API which I also designed and built alone.

Code Sample

React Native Mobile Applications

The two mobile applications which I designed and built for SNIPPR - one for customers and one for hair stylists. The apps are built with React Native + Expo and are currently production ready and available on both iOS and Android. The apps use a variety of SDKs and extensions, however the UIs are completely custom.

NextJS Marketing Website

The public facing marketing site for SNIPPR, while relatively small and simple for the MVP. I designed and then built this site in NextJS, which is deployed on Vercel (previously on Azure). The site pulls content from Storyblok via the Storyblok API, content is migrated from staging to production via Github Actions and the Storyblok CLI.
