I am not available for new projects, and I am not seeking new opportunities.

.NET + Kentico Web Developer | Consultant | Solutions Architect | Newcastle-based, remote-ready

If you occasionally need an extra senior Kentico developer during a busy period, or tech guidance on sales or solution architecture for Kentico projects, I’d like to help.

I’m an Australian freelance Kentico developer with 6+ years of agency experience implementing Kentico websites, and over 17 years’ experience as a professional web developer, both on-site and remotely.

I can help you with

  • technical architecture, risk assessment and project guidance (including support during scoping, sales, estimation and the tender process)
  • implementation of ASP.NET, SQL, .NET Web API and Kentico solutions including complex Kentico eCommerce solutions, payment gateways, custom modules, integration with third party systems, import and export tools etc
  • rapid, high quality implementation of static markup into Kentico using best practices, satisfying web and accessibility standards (HTML5 validation, WCAG)
  • supporting, guiding and working alongside your dev team, or solo
  • training and mentoring in Kentico for developers and content administrators
  • team development – hiring, assessing, expanding and improving your tech team and its processes, induction materials
  • supporting technical change and growth
  • preparing for and improving remote working practices
  • independent Kentico project audits and assessments
  • Kentico upgrades

If you’re considering an overseas / outsourced Kentico dev team, I might also be able to help you establish, train and manage that team on location.

I can possibly also help with the following, although these are skills I am improving, and not my strengths:

  • some front-end work: AngularJS, jQuery, NVD3, Twitter Bootstrap, adapting existing HTML/CSS/js
  • other CMS development: Squarespace, WordPress, Umbraco and Orchard

My location and movements

I prefer remote work, which allows me to enjoy time travelling Australia and overseas. I’m presently based in Newcastle, Australia.
