Who, me?

Profile-Crop

I am a freelance creative senior front-end developer based in London. I like writing code and making sounds.

My go-to programming language is PHP and I specialise in building WordPress and Shopify websites from the ground up. My skill set also includes HTML5, CSS3, SCSS, C#, Gulp.js and BEM methodology, among others (read on for the full list).

In short, I code, sometimes design, and also make ambient and electronic music as well as taking field recordings of my surroundings.

Background

I have been coding for over 15 years. I hold a BA Degree in Fine Art and studied Typography at University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins.

Since leaving full-time employment and setting up my limited company in May 2014, I have worked on a variety of contracts as a front-end developer (and sometimes full-stack developer).

Why not check out my open-source Shopify boilerplate theme? I also created a WordPress plugin that allows for customisation of SVG social icons.

As well as my development work, I enjoy creating ambient and electronic music. I have exhibited my sound work in London and regularly contribute to the Cities and Memory project.

I like designing and building digital things, making music, playing cricket, attempting to learn to speak French, drinking coffee, watching John Carpenter films, reading, and riding my bicycle. I believe Kurt Russell to be the best.

Developer skill set

PHP, HTML5, CSS3, SASS, SCSS, Less, JavaScript, C#, BEM methodology, jQuery, Twitter API, OAuth, RequireJS, AngularJS, Two.js, Liquid, WordPress, Shopify, Contensis, Bootstrap, Gulp, Grunt, Git, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Sketch.

Testimonials

Here’s what my clients have to say about me…

Kiwani Dolean

Lead Designer, Lantum

Jase has helped us to build our new website in our big rebrand project… It was a pleasure to collaborate with him, he’s excellent at what he does and is very quick to understand what is needed. I provided him with wireframes and Sketch design files and he was able to work his magic and create something that works perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to do the job!

Róisín Haugh

Programme Director, Ogilvy

Jase was a pleasure to have at Ogilvy. He was a lovely guy, very organised, very patient and really great at the task. We would definitely get him back in. He had no issues with last minute changes or multiple rounds of feedback and even after he left he was still really helpful over email. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to do the job! Thank you, Jase.

Rosh Mahtani

Director, Alighieri

Jase was incredible; he understood the aesthetic I was going for and went out of his way to create it. He was extremely diligent, always happy to answer any of my questions with great speed and patience. I could not recommend Jase highly enough.

Leigh Share

Director, Pixel Pudding

Jase had a great understanding of what we wanted to achieve and did a fantastic job highlighting any areas were we might be able to make improvements. He has an eye for detail and produced some excellent results.

Anthony Marshall

Technical Director, Suburb

We hired Jase to build the entire front end of a WordPress site for one of our high profile clients. His work was of the highest standard and he required very little supervision. He is also very easy to get along with and I know the rest of my team liked him a lot. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

Patrick Hinton

Senior Digital Manager, CDP

Recently Jase worked on refining the front end development of our new website. I would not hesitate to hire Jase again as he is brilliant to work with. He understood quickly and easily what we were looking for bringing professionalism, an amazing attention to detail and a refreshing approach to the project. Needless to say the results were excellent and delivered to the highest standard.
