Freelance consultant living in Bristol

I work with companies and web agencies providing advice and support with WebOps, DevOps and Web development. I can work remotely or if your Bristol based, in your office 💻.

Experience 🙅


I can help setting up processes to deal with deployment, management, maintenance and recovery of your web sites/applications.

I have experience managing cloud infrastructure and can recommend solutions.


Because I have solid experience of both building for the web and web operations I can help your team get to grips with DevOps.

I can put processes in place to improve your development/release cycle and bridge the gap between development and operations.

Web Development

I have 10+ years experience of building a variety of web sites and web applications using an array of open source software.


I enjoy teaching/training and have given a variety of talks and workshops. If your team needs a primer or a deep dive on a particular subject I'm familiar with I would be happy to offer training.
