Built using a bespoke template on top of a Joomla 3 back end, this is my personal DJ website. Used primarily to host my weekly radio show podcasts from mixcloud. Mainly hardcoded into index.php and with various php overrides, with each weekly podcast being taken from a Joomla article. This site uses a bit of jquery to give some nice effects to the homepage (see the parallax scrolling and the fixed menu). It is also responsive.
Professional Full-Stack Developer
"I started coding for fun at school where I created Mortal Kombat, Pong and Duck Hunt on my Texas TI-82 calculator. After a masters degree in Astrophisics, I ran a DJ agency for which I developed a custom booking management system in MS Access / VBA. I have also been, over the last decade, building websites for myself and others culminating in a lead developer role in a web agency which I co-founded with a web designer."
"Throughout my professional career, I have been engaged with IT as a project manager and consultant, and after 8 years I decided to make the switch to professional developing. I enrolled onto a self-funded an IT training program with Just IT, where I specialised in both front- and back-end technologies."

A brochure site for an oxford-based engineering firm. The main pages represent their key areas of operation, and there is an innovative overlay feature showing individual pages about their specific services. The site is predominantly hardcoded into index.php with various php overrides and a standard Joomla 3 CMS backend. Joomla articles control all of the service pages, allowing the site owner to add and remove services as they please. There is a lot of jQuery and the whole site is responsive.

A bespoke Joomla 3 template creating a website for an independent opticians in Islington. This is a responsive, single-page site using scrollable panels to handle the architecture of the site. The majority of the site is hardcoded into index.php, with Joomla articles being used to create the text content for each page. Using the Joomla CMS, the owner is able to edit the text parts of each page (from either the front-end or the back-end). This site was also heavily SEO'd and sits in the top 3 for most of the targeted search terms.
