My name is Lee, I'm 37 and I'm currently enjoying life with my family in Manchester; my wife and two daughters. My ethos as a developer is to focus on the solution at hand, and always use the right technologies - learning along the way. My most recent work experience:
Senior Full Stack Developer, The PC Customiser, Bolton – April 2016 - December 2017
My time with The PC Customiser was literally amazing. I designed, wrote and maintained their e-commerce site, starting with the hardware all the way to UX design with AngularJS. I integrated finance, Paypal and Barclays payment gateways whilst installing/maintaining the backend NodeJS code. As well as the website, I created a number of internal systems to save the company money, such as an automated stock manager using dropship distributors. This meant the company didn't need to hold much stock, saving on warehouse space.
CPE Development Specialist, Zen Internet, Rochdale – June 2011 - April 2016
As a CPE Development Specialist I had the pleasure of working on many important projects across the business, including ACS design using NodeJS, deployment and maintenance (TR-069), IPVPN CPE configuration management and development, VM deployment and management, creating DSLAM testing tools, as well as designing and running of Zen's CPE Lab and it's backend software and utilities.
A stack is the technology that you can work with, have experience with and enjoy using to create great things. My chosen stack is based on past experience and things I've found to be extremely useful. Most importantly, I feel they're the best tools for the job.

A brief selection of examples from projects I've worked on, from custom ecommerce websites to print media. I enjoy all aspects of media design, front and back, and I've been lucky enough to work on a wide variety of projects across a number of industries.
Logo and brand design is fascinating to me. The work that happens behind any brand design is extremely intricate and detailed, with effortless results. From logo design to font usage - I've been using and creating company design languages for a number of years and is something I'm very passionate about.
