Front-End Web Developer
A member of the News Visual Journalism team, creating bespoke interactive content (maps, calculators, visual storytelling formats) with a focus on accessible, progressively enhanced code with wide browser-support.
To capitalise on my existing design and development skills, I took the leap to study with Thinkful. Working through projects in HTML, JS and Node I solidified my knowledge of production ready code, testing and version control.
Graduating with a 2:1 , this degree was assessed through essays, presentations, performance and recorded materials. I performed best in Sonic Art and Improvisation modules.
A spreadsheet-driven, updatable, searchable database with filters and highlighted entries. Built with React and ported to Preact for production. The main challenge was reiterating on the filtering behaviour, to ensure a smooth UX.
A map with overlay displaying countries results made using the Google Maps API and a "card" style interface for displaying more detailed rankings and score breakdowns. This was my first project at BBC leading the development, and helped refine my skills in collaborating with another developer on a project.
