I have 10+ years experience doing what I am most passionate about; building webapps and sites–creating great experiences on the internet!
I have worked remotely for companies in North America and Australia for most of my career. I am interested in both on-site and remote opportunities. Referees are available for all my recent clients and employers.
I studied first and second year computer science papers at the University of Canterbury. I was an A-grade student and enjoyed many of the papers on programming, software engineering, compilers, databases, human-computer interaction. Though I found that the content of most of the rest of the papers was out of date and not relevant to modern web development, and preferred to teach myself.
Many projects including user interaction design, ecommerce stores, an economics calculator for analysis of planned and actual hydroelectric power station projects, systems integration for a telecommunications company and creation of public APIs for call records data, automated transfer of music collections from Rdio to Google Play Music, Spotify, etc.; Drupal, Angular JS, Rendr, Flask, Python, Postgres.
Integrating nesi.org.nz with 5 high-performance computing clusters in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington, I managed the website and led the development team. I moved the website to more reliable managed infrastructure and, agile development and project management practices in place and trained a junior software engineer.
