About Me

My name's * and I'm a veteran front-end developer and technologist, working at rehab studio. I code mainly client-side languages (although I'm familiar with server-side too) and I'm a keen advocate of web standards. If you're interested, there's a fuller biography and samples of work below.

I’m the author of The Mod­ern Web and The Book of CSS3, and have writ­ten for print and online pub­li­ca­tions includ­ing .Net mag­a­zine and Smash­ing Mag­a­zine. I used to write about the next ver­sion of CSS at CSS3.info. I have spo­ken at web devel­op­ment meet­ings and Ignite Lon­don (see my Lanyrd page, below). I’m active­ly look­ing for more speak­ing and writ­ing opportunities.

Most of the time I go under the user name of stop­sat­green (clever anagram): 

Potted biography

I’ve been a pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­er since 2000. I’m self-taught (here’s my first effort at a viable web­site) and began as a free­lancer dur­ing the .com boom, work­ing for a vari­ety of sites which no longer exist.

I took a per­ma­nent role at Design­er City (RIP) and worked on web­sites for clients includ­ing Tesco, Fire­trap and Arse­nal.

After the demise of Design­er City I stayed with Arsenal.com when it was tak­en over by Grana­da Media, then moved to Cis­co Sys­tems in 2004.

I was­n’t at Cis­co long before I decid­ed that I want­ed to return to agency work, so in 2005 I left to join AND. Here I worked on a num­ber of launch­es, for clients includ­ing August Equi­ty, Car­rot Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Craft Cen­tral.

From there I joined Pre­loaded, a dig­i­tal agency in Lon­don cre­at­ing infor­ma­tion archi­tec­ture, user expe­ri­ence, and writ­ing front-end code on sites like Arts Coun­cil Eng­land.

After Pre­loaded I joined Poke as a devel­op­er, where I worked for clients includ­ing Orange (on The Feed home­page and the More From… mobile site, for exam­ple) and Skype.

I also helped build Pre­loaded and Poke’s cur­rent sites.

My pre­vi­ous per­ma­nent role was at Top10.com, where I helped build the cur­rent site and their Spo­ti­fy app.

Here’s a select­ed port­fo­lio of sites I’ve made.
