I’ve been part of the Rubber Cheese team for 4 years now, and I lead web development for our clients’ websites and apps. I also need to keep things ticking over so a large part of my day is spent on maintenance and testing – this means everything stays working and we also keep ahead of changes to the web!
I’ve been a developer since 2009, when I got my first job as a junior developer shortly after graduating from the University of Plymouth with a First Class Degree in Multimedia, Production and Technology. I worked for a Bristol-based video production company where I worked with brands like Marriott, HP and Nintendo.
I’ve always had an interest in how things work internally. Around the same time I started University Facebook and Twitter launched which sparked my curiosity. It set me off on a path to learn how to develop websites and figure out how they work; this is when I started to produce my own sites. By the time I reached my final year I had built up my knowledge of web development, and even created my own niche social network for bookworms, which had over 1000 active users. Today I still want to develop new products and it’s a goal I share with Rubber Cheese.
I’m obsessed with cars! I will spend hours detailing my car, browsing the Piston Heads forum and I never miss an F1 race. I live with my wife in Chelmsford and I’m originally from Lancashire. I’ve moved around a fair bit, starting at university in Plymouth, my first job was in Bristol and now we are in sunny Essex!
