    Avenue Imperial

    For Avenue Imperial’s virtual shopping platform I built a realtime chat application for shoppers to communicate with shop assistants. The assistants manage queues of shoppers, answer questions, take and send pictures and process payments, all from a browser on a tablet.

    ShortList / Stylist

    For ShortList Media’s magazine duo I led the development of a cutting edge publishing platform. Backed by a Node API, administered with a snappy single-page web app, the editors now have access to incredibly powerful widget layouts, image cropping tools and content aggregation.

    Time Inc.

    Based on the foundations of the aformentioned publishing platform, I worked on a loyalty platform for Time Inc.’s 70+ UK magazine brands, including NME and Marie Claire. The platform enables editors to surface special offers and events to magazine subscribers of any title, all from one place.

    I’m an active open source developer. Take a look at my modules and contributions on GitHub and npm.

    My favourites are a date/time picker; a module to make url safe strings; and my own set of Model, View and Collection MVC components.
