About

I’m a Brighton based freelance front-end developer. I have been working professionally as a developer for over 6 years, but have been building websites since I could use a computer.

Immaculate code, thought-out UX and rigorous testing is paramount to the way I work. Clear, well-documented code and the latest web standards, ensure your website will continue to perform no matter who works on it in the future.

If you’re interested in working together, please contact me.

“As software developers, we always planned to find some downtime to get our website up to snuff. But once we met up with Jake and he talked us through the various options we realised the benefits of working with an experienced web developer to set up and host our site. During the initial consultation, Jake helped us nail down the key elements, define the visual style and breakdown the layouts for both desktop and mobile form factors. As the work progressed, he took our feedback on board and pulled it all together to deliver a functional and polished website and helped us establish a professional online presence for the future.”

— Matt Rubin

“I commissioned Jake to create my very first website. That was nine or so years ago, and I have never looked back. Jake was so knowledgeable, patient and helpful, which was a godsend, as I had no clue where to begin. He comes thoroughly recommended!”

— Jacqueline Elsey

“Jake helped our charity start up the website from the beginning. It is a welcoming website and very easy to use. Nothing is to much trouble for Jake who is easy to work with.”
