Hello, I'm Tom!

I'm a Drupal & Front-end Developer from Manchester.

I have over 5 years of industry experience and I'm currently the Lead Front-end Developer at BLISS.

I'm highly proficient with HTML, CSS & JavaScript as well as a wide range of templating engines and CMS's such as Drupal and Wordpress. I'm also very passionate about Responsive Web Design and Development and carry great consideration for optimisation.

I also have a solid understanding of back-end technologies such as PHP, and more recently, Ruby.

So far in my career I've had the pleasure of working with some exciting brands and businesses such as Boohoo, British Council, Education UK, Schwarzkopf, The Royal Bank of Scotland, Supponor, Manchester Digital and many more.

Aside from my day job I’m a big fan of two wheels; I'm an avid cyclist and motorcycle rider. I also run a Paleo and Fitness blog called Buns of Steel.

So, what have I done?

A collection of work I'm really proud of from the past few years.
