About

Hi; thanks for taking the time to visit my site.

I’m the founder and main web developer at Nifty Digits Ltd in Cardiff. Previously I worked at Aardman Features upon their web based asset management system for the film Pirates!

Here I publish my thoughts on anything that takes my fancy. Mostly that concerns web development, conferences and running a number of side projects such as the Fairtrade t-shirt site Fair & Bare.

For 4 years of my life, I worked on my PhD at Cardiff University, before finally passing my viva in 2009. Probably the most valuable skills I learnt whilst doing so were about myself, rather than anything written in my final thesis.

I’m skilled in PHP, MySQL, Java and Javascript. More recently I play in the php web framework lithium, CouchDB and node.js. I also dabble Python when I get the chance.
