About


Edinburgh based design and development

Currently pursuing a Masters degree in software engineering at Heriot-Watt university.
Outside of university I have been involved in various projects and in 2015 began operating as an independent web developer and designer.
I strive to build robust and user friendly systems on a wide range of platforms and I find that when a great interface is coupled with a solid back end, the result can have a powerful effect on both users and clients.
This is something I am passionate about and always seek to achieve in my work.
