About

I’m a front end developer with more than 5 years’ experience crafting interesting and unusual websites which are on-brand and responsive.

I create...

  • succinct, semantially decisive HTML
  • Javascript that’s both creative and sensible
  • CSS backed by a “breadth and specificity” of skills (according to a client)

Together, these three skills help me to create websites that are accessible, usable and aesthetically pleasing.

I’m obsessed with code. I set up FESuffolk, a front-end user group based in my home town of Ipswich. The group meets every month to talk tech and share presentations based on front-end development and design.

On top of this, I’m always reading and researching around my field. I’m adept at spotting and embracing the best new techniques, and avoiding the ones that are just fads. As a result, I’m confident that the work I deliver to my clients is always cutting-edge.

Availability

I’m based in Suffolk, and available to work in and around East Anglia on a contract/freelance basis.

I can also work remotely for clients throughout the UK and the rest of Europe.

I work on a variety of long and short-term projects, and some months are busier than others. If you’re interested in working together, contact me by email.

Testimonials

  • Anders worked with us for several weeks and immediately became part of the team. He's a talented and flexible Javascript, PHP and Ruby developer and had no problem working to our coding style, picking up projects halfway-through, contributing at a deep technical level and diving into several projects at once. He's our star freelancer!

  • Anders came to our aide recently to help clear a backlog of tasks. His responsiveness to the brief, professionalism, depth of knowledge and ability have been a great boost to the team, allowing us to bring a couple of stagnating WordPress based projects to successful closure.

    The speed and accuracy of Anders’ work is a breath of fresh air and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

    I hope to build on this newly formed relationship and look forward to drafting him on to the team for future projects.
