WizPip Limited was created in 2011 as a platform for me to provide my services to corporations that required more formal arrangements with freelance workers. Since its inception, the company has provided services to a range of corporations, companies, and individuals.
I began programming computers in BASIC at the age of 12, when most people hadn't heard of the internet. This childhood hobby lead into a degree in BSc Software Engineering, in which I discovered the software development lifecycle. I learnt how to write desktop applications in C++ and started a career in professional web development in 2006.
Although I started out as backend server PHP coder, given my background, I was surrounded by masters in HTML and soon became a fully fledged frontend developer too, creating valid and accessible websites in their entirety. I'm a big believer in all web standards and ultra-efficient frameworkless code.
I've worked for media agencies in London and Bedford, for my own freelance clients, and have completed extensive contract work for corporations. I was one of a team of three developers that created the 2009 YO! Sushi website, which won a Webby Award in 2010. By the end of 2016 I had worked on 159 different websites and projects.
I love pointless but interesting maths. For example, in ten years as a web developer between 2006 and 2016, I have consumed roughly 9 million kcals of sustenance, equivalent to 36 seconds of energy output from Dungeness B nuclear power station. Assuming maximum output since commissioning in 1983, Dungeness B has produced as much energy as 3.3 million humans will consume within their lifetimes.
