I'm Thomas...

...a 34 year old Web Developer from Essex, UK. I've been building websites in one form or another since the age of twelve, but I've been working for digital agencies for about 11 years. During that time I have worked predominantly as a backend developer, but I also have an appreciation and understanding of good UX/UI.

Day to day I use a combination of PHP (including frameworks such as Zend & CodeIgniter), MySQL, HTML/HTML5, CSS3 & jQuery to build and maintain a Content Management System, in-house solutions and extend Wordpress & a number of E-Commerce solutions by way of plugins & modules. I also spend a lot of my spare time working on my own projects, some of which are available on my GitHub page.

I’m a keen footballer - Sunday-League standard at best (some would say even that's a bit of a stretch!). As well as playing, I also like to watch my local club, Dagenham & Redbridge F.C., which I have done so for the last 23 seasons. I also enjoy playing the guitar. Oh, and when I can think of something to write about I stick it on my blog.
