Designer & Front-End Developer


I am a designer & front-end developer from Ballymena, Northern Ireland with 3 years industry experience. Currently, I am working for dotRetailer in Belfast's Titanic Quarter.

My aim is to build well executed websites, that look & perform great on all devices. We're now at a stage where a large chunk of our users browse from a mobile device, albeit a mobile phone or tablet. Those users browsing over a 3G connection do not need to be downloading unnecessary content. My aim is to prioritise what content is necessary - giving users the best possible experience when accessing the web.


I am a graduate of Interactive Multimedia Design from the University of Ulster, studying both in the main campus at Jordanstown, and the Art College in Belfast. I completed the course, gaining a Second Class Honours in the Upper Division (2:1) in July 2013.


You can find me at local web events around Belfast such as Hustle & Refresh. These are always great for catching up with local designers & developers as well as meeting others. I have also attended Build on two occasions.
