Hello! I’m an experienced iOS app developer based in the UK. You’ll find a bit about me, my skills and experience here, and can get in touch with me should you want an app developing, or a contractor to hire.

I have over 6 years developing iOS apps in Swift and/or Objective C, for a wide variety of clients, both big and small.

I recently completed 4 years as a contractor, working on big enterprise iPad apps for Pernod-Ricard, used by thousands of reps all over Europe and Africa. I’ve also worked for big clients such as Universal Music, The Salvation Army and CPI Card Group, as well as lots of smaller local projects for startups and non-profits.

You can see my portfolio online here, but as a lot of it is under contract please contact me for a password, or a screen share demo of what I’ve been working on.
