What I do
I will work with you to fully understand your needs and the problems or challenges we're trying to solve. We'll discuss solutions through conversation and facilitation.
Before writing any code, I'll help you understand the process and thoughts behind how a system or architecture will be engineered. I apply critical thinking and foresight to projects before building.
I work in a continuous delivery fashion while in the development process. You get to see progress in an iterative and timely fashion, so there's ample time for feedback and input.

Rich is amazing to work with and when it comes to building software, there's no one else I'd rather work with. He's extremely thoughtful about how to craft code, is a great team player and highly communicative.

From day one, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Richard. Coming from a hospitality background, my understanding of coding and web development is limited but he has the wonderful ability of understanding a basic brief and translating it into an elegant solution that simply works. I look forward to evolving our website and booking API with Richard in future.

Jess and Rich did a great job taking my team from having a crude idea for a product to having a fully fleshed out user interface. Jess took the time to understand what our core business problems were and to iterate through an increasingly detailed set of proposals until we got an outstanding design. At that point Rich was able to take Jess’ work and convert it into HTML and CSS that our software development team could directly plug into our backend.
