Summary


Radio Presenting Web Developer


I'm a PHP and JavaScript developer who writes well documented, efficient code on the back end which produces clean, standards compliant, accessible HTML on the front.

I spent a decade working in radio then spent the following decade building a ringtone and music download business I've also written and released software in PHP which has been used by thousands including NASA, Nintendo, Stanford and Shrek.

I recently helped launch a DAB radio station, assisted with their streaming setup and presented a few mid-morning shows which rekindled my love of radio! I'm currently developing my own concept for automated online radio and looking for a role in broadcast technology where the different aspects of my skills can work together

Other previous projects:


WordPress Mobile Plugin

A long time ago I installed WordPress as a CMS and put the words "Mobile Web Developer" on my site, then noting how my site didn't have a mobile browser friendly version set about writing something to change that. After a several day long intense coding session I'd released 'WordPress Mobile Plugin' which detected mobile phones on WordPress blogs and showed them a mobile friendly template.

At the peak of this plugin's success it was installed on tens of thousands of sites and can be estimated to have generated over a hundred million page impressions a month on the mobile web, calculated on my 1% share of mobile advertising which was enabled within the plugin
