TECH GUY FOR HIRE [sometimes]
I'm a freelance full-stack web and mobile developer/tech architect, with a wide experience in different technologies, covering websites, applications, mobile, databases and games.
I'm based in Deal, Kent (UK) and can work remotely or onsite in Kent or London.
If you've got a project, big, small, or ad-hoc - that could do with an extra pair of expert hands, then feel free to get in touch.
Recent clients include Lush, Nike, Dyson, AKQA
What do I do?
Expertise in designing and creating...
Responsive, semantic websites that work correctly across browsers and sized to suit all mobile, tablet and desktop screens.

I use the latest standards and various frameworks to create visually appealing and functional online presences. I'm happy to be involved with all aspects and all sides of a project, from initial conception, UX/UI, online marketing -- the full life-cycle. Technically, I can cover anything from design & planning, MVP, frontend, backend & infrastructure.
the nitty-gritty... I'm fluent in the following tech stack

A clear advantage:
Hire me only when you need me...
Less costs and hassle than employing. No sick or holiday pay, pension or healthcare contribution. No need to agency or recruitment fees if you've found me directly.
No fuss, No middleman, No employment ties. Just skills on demand.
Instantly available on demand (by prior arrangement if not otherwise engaged).
Hours to suit you - day, week or monthly rates, or pay per job.
Why? When you need an expert to quickly fill a temporary technological gap. Maybe it's just for a few days or weeks. Bridge a gap for a new hire. A one-off, ad-hoc job or continous assistance.
