Oliver, three and three quarters.

I can take your idea from the back of a napkin and into a browser/phone/tablet. I’ve been through the process many times. The first time I worked on a commercial website was around 1999. I typed out my first computer program at the age of 7.

Writing code and developing on the web is something I love; still, after nearly 17yrs - it’s my passion. I’ve owned an Apple Mac since around 1991, I still use a Mac to this day.

I run Windows inside a VirtualMachine when I need access to a PC. My favourite text editor is BBEdit, but I’ve recently been using PHPStorm and actually quite like it. My Linux of choice is CentOS, it’s where I feel most comfortable.

I much prefer PHP probably because it was my first server side language and it is so malleable. I actually like writing LESS - which seems like a bad habit that I should probably change.

The very first version of Adobe Photoshop I used was 2.0.1, although I don’t use them much anymore I feel comfortable in all the Creative Suite/Cloud Applications (although I much prefer working with a designated Designer or Illustrator).

I studied Graphic Design at degree level, I did enjoy it, I do still enjoy it, but it’s not something I would say I excel at.

Copy writing is not one of my strong points, I strongly recommend you write your own content…
(I would highly recommend that actually) .

It’s you’re business not mine - (unless you want to talk equity).
