Passionate, with strong communication skills and a challenging innovative approach to my work I have quickly established myself as a professional Full Stack Web Developer.  

I am from Wellington, New Zealand and am currently on the lookout for employment within the greater London area. 

I am a contractor working remotely for the Ministry of Education in New Zealand. My role here includes creating Silverstripe PHP websites and features for clients as well as minor requirement gathering for web based projects. 

I am seeking a role as either a PHP or Front-End developer. I would like to expand upon my skills in the following javascript frameworks Node.js or Angular as I have not yet had the opportunity to use them in a commercial environment.
