Under the hood; let's see what I can do…

Having developed my unique skill set over the last two decades I have worked on many projects in a variety of capacities, from consultant to architect, from crisis management to complete rebuilds. This page showcases only a few of the projects where I have been privileged to run full-stack from the ground up. This should give you a flavour of my experience and expertise, open-handed examples of live websites with data reports being generated daily, no smoke and mirrors.

MM Facilities Southern

Pound Hill, Crawley, West Sussex

A new website for a newly formed company. MM Facilities Southern came to me looking for a fast website which focussed on their work examples, so I hooked them up with a scratch built CMS for the showcases with additional control over the meta and open graph data.

Big Venue Book

Skegness, Lincolnshire

Originally conceived in 2010 this is an absolute beast of a site, multiple tier CMS meets a fast geo-search service. Always a work in progress but the biggest challenge was to get the website to a reasonable index size, coupled with generating value-added content it's no small task. This is a prime example of ways to get from A to B with graceful staging in-between.

TC Garage

Copthorne, West Sussex

I've been working with this top end specialist since 2011 and they are going from strength-to-strength. This is their second revision for the website, it's a custom built CMS for showcasing their tuning work with compression and power graphs. For design I went the branded pitstop route to match their performance tuning passion.

Hawthorn Cat Hotel

Hookwood, Horley, Surrey

I was contacted by the new owners of Hawthorn Cat Hotel to rescue them from the clutches of Yell.com before their imminent renewal date. I delivered a simple CMS for gallery control with built in compression, first class speed whilst retaining and gaining search presence on migration. They are currently looking at deeper content levels for visitors.
