Hello, I'm Alan, and I am a developer, designer, photographer and dad.

I've worked through all stages of the development life-cycle for a broad range of clients spanning many industry sectors. I find myself more at home creating user-friendly, well-crafted front-end experiences with a strong focus on usability, performance, and maintainability.

I have been developing for close to 15 years and spent many years working with .NET based technologies. More recently I have embraced Ruby and Python, and have found myself working on more Rails and Machine Learning based projects.

I'm currently available for freelance work! Let's chat via email.

ibrandIQ

Tecnical Director

Working at ibrandIQ I was brought in to maintain an their existing where-to-buy platform. This quickly moved to into devleoping the next version of their platform.

The new platform uses machine learning to organise products from a global catalogue of retailers, in multiple languages. It also improves on the daily admin tasks, which has allowed the team to have more availability to work on other more critical projects.

Freelance Designer/Developer

I have worked on a selection of projects, across different industries. I plan to keep working on these in my free time and further develop my skill set.

I'm currently accepting freelance projects. If you'd like to discuss any exciting project you have, shoot me an email.

Bud.

UI Developer

I joined Bud to head up their front-end team, and move the web app forward. I worked closely with the in-house design team; the goal was to design and develop a functional and user-friendly platform which would enable users to aggregate all their financial data.

Capital on Tap

Senior UI Developer

I was asked to return to Capital on Tap as they needed someone to create a living style guide and develop guidelines for their front end projects. While here I also have been working on some public facing pages to help promote the company.

Capital on Tap

Developer

I primarily worked on front-end projects optimising, reworking and improving load times to the public facing sites. I also led the creation and implementation of a custom SASS library into existing web solutions projects and training members of the team on how to use the library.

During my time at Capital on Tap, I also had exposure to some of the .NET back end. Including working on unit tests, developing the customer portals so users could manage their accounts online.

Balmoral Financial

Senior Developer

I refactored the company site by rewriting most of the code on the front end. These changes led to improvements in the UI, and performance of the site overall.

Fasttrack Company

Developer

I designed and developed the UI concept for the user and admin areas which were built using .NET MVC, and WebAPI. Along with the admin areas, I also created a conceptual native Android application. This app used Bluetooth LE to communicate with prototype devices and transferred data to the prototype.

NASDAQ OMX

Senior Designer/Developer

During my time at NASDAQ, I was the only designer/developer on the team. Utilising the in-house framework, I developed newsroom sites for various big brand clients such as Facebook, Sony, Gatwick, Mattel and Centre Parcs.

I also designed responsive, eye-catching designs for clients including Sony, and Gatwick. Two of which were put forward for 'design impact' awards.

Also, while working at NASDAQ, I became a Microsoft Certified Professional.

The Whisky Exchange

Front-end developer

I designed and developed an internal system which allowed the sales team to manage products and orders on Amazon using the MWS API. It was created using .NET 4.0 which ran LINQ queries and web services to process data, and communicate with the Amazon API. I also worked on many minor front-end projects, micro-sites, newsletters, cross browser compatibility.
