About Me!

I am a freelance software developer based in Rolleston, near Christchurch, New Zealand. My passion is working with great people and building lasting relationships. And because I love what I do, my clients always get the very best of me and my work.

I am competent in all open-source web frameworks; I specialise in SilverStripe and Laravel.

I work closely with my clients to create a customised solution meeting their specific needs. Whether simply a website promoting their business/interest; or development of more advanced cloud-based software facilitating the information management of their business, potentially increasing efficiencies and reducing long-term operational costs.

I have considerable experience in developing more advanced solutions such as:

  • E-commerce websites
  • HTML5 Mobile Applications
  • Advanced data and asset management interfaces
  • GIS solutions
  • (BIM) Building and infrastructure management (cloud-based) software

With over a decade of commercial experience in web development, I enjoy keeping up with the latest trends and technologies in an ever-changing industry, and being able to apply these to your benefit.

Contact me for more information.


Brochure Websites

As a SilverStripe developer, this is where I spend most of my time now. I also have experience with WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and a few less common CMS frameworks.

Want something up and running ASAP for your business where you can manage all content and images yourself going forward? Talk to me.

Mobile Data Collection Apps

I have created and managed the development of several HTML5 offline-capable data collection applications.

These apps have varied in complexity from simple survey data collections to fully-functional residential building data collection including inspector scheduling and tenant appointment management.

Business Reporting Dashboards

I have created a range of HTML5 dashboard and project management web applications.

These applications have ranged from simple statistical overviews to more complex project milestone tracking applications with due dates and auto-emailing reminders etc.

Indexing systems

I have created many (many!) online/intranet database and data register applications. An example as pictured to the right is an Architectural register for tracking thousands of drawings across hundreds of contracts.

Compliance Management Systems

I have created a range of compliance management and monitoring systems for various business cases. These business cases would include building compliance monitoring, bridge and roading condition monitoring, commercial building warrant of fitness compliance and also building fire safety compliance.

Some of these applications also included mobile interfaces to the same data sources (usually through developing a REST API through the web application) for condition assessment data collection.
