What are your favourite things about Blue Frontier?

Working with an incredibly diverse range of projects and a highly skilled, dedicated and passionate team. It’s an absolute pleasure to be involved with such a skilled bunch. I also love that no two days are the same, even after a decade in my role I’m continually challenged in an ever evolving world of technology.

What does your Blue Frontier role involve?

My role includes managing, developing and supporting a variety of different websites, from bug zapping to large scale development and API integration. I will get my hands on anything PHP based with a speciality for Joomla & WordPress.

What would your dream project be?

As a programmer, I would love to one day be involved in creating a video game!

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

When I’m not programming I’m spending time with my amazing family, I enjoy walking the dog where we live in the picturesque surroundings of rural Hampshire and love to get my hands dirty with DIY!
