About me

Hello, I’m Alan, and I am a developer, designer, photographer and dad.

I’ve worked through all stages of the development life-cycle for a broad range of clients spanning many industry sectors. I find myself more at home creating user-friendly, well-crafted front-end experiences with a strong focus on usability, performance, and maintainability.

I have been a developer for over 15 years and spent many years working with .NET (C#). Over the last 6 years I have embraced Ruby, and have found myself working on more Rails projects. During 2020 I started learning iOS development and released 2 apps to the app store.

I’m currently available for freelance work! Let’s chat via email.

Looking for my CV? Please drop me an email if you’d like my CV.


A lot of my career has been working within the financial industry. I found this to be where a lot of the innovation has been and I have gained experience working within some amazing startups.

I am now taking this experience and seeing where it can be applied in other industries such as property, and analytical solutions.
