I’ve been interested in making things easier for as long as I can remember. Perhaps I’m just lazy, perhaps I’m not very clever… though if you ask me it’s just because I can’t believe that things have to be as difficult as they are.
I’m currently working with MobileCaddy as a frontend and mobile architect and also as a freelance dev-for-hire. For the previous 1 years I worked in telecoms networks as a software developer and engineer.
I’m also the guy behind several popular WordPress plugins such as 5-star rated Widgets On Pages and have built many bespoke themes for clients.
During my time in telecoms I was part of the small team who designed and developed an in-house SMSC (Short Message Service Centre) and also within the Intelligent Networks design and developement team who were responsible for services such as Pay As You Go. My latest role was as the lead developer on the in-house PCRF platform.
During my studies at university I was the webmaster* for the Studen Union site as well as writing music reviews (where I got the chance to interview Roxy Wild – Kim Wild’s younger sister – and walk past Kylie Minogue – she still had a surname then – in a corridor).
This site is my home and the web… it’ll contain some of his thoughts and ramblings.
* what an awful title that is… but that’s the way it was in the late 90s
