Hi! I'm Paul.

I'm a web developer with experience in AngularJS, Jekyll, CSS, Django and Drupal. I've also done UX work as part of my current role at the University of Oxford, including user interviews and wireframing.

I'm from Liverpool originally but have been living and working in Oxfordshire for 10 years.

Here's some of my work:

Year Of The Fiery Horse

http://www.yotfh.com

A website using Jekyll for my brother's band Year Of The Fiery Horse. They're based in Liverpool. I originally built a single page site which acted as an aggregator for their social media presence and also their music online. The band then wanted the site redesigned to fit with their E.P. cover designs as well as having a simple "newsfeed". I thought that Jekyll was a good fit for that as it didn't need a lot of dynamic elements. I have plans to migrate this again to Wordpress or another alternative like Ghost so the guys can update news on there themselves.

ChemBio Hub

http://chembiohub.ox.ac.uk

A website again using Jekyll for my current role as web developer at the University of Oxford. I had to make this fit the colour scheme and branding guidelines of the University as well as look clean and professional to show to external funding bodies and University policy makers. I had regular feedback from various stakeholders and made appropriate additions based on that. All of our work within ChemBio Hub is open source and designed to foster collaboration between chemical and biological researchers as well as reduce duplication of effort.

The SGC

http://www.thesgc.org

This was a Drupal install which I set up to replace a PHP site for The SGC within University of Oxford. We went through a few iterations in terms of the design, information architecture and theming. I last had involvement in 2014 but the site retains a lot of the core work I did. For example, the Structure Gallery at www.thesgc.org/structures is a jQuery and Isotope based filter I built which allows an external database to be viewed within Drupal.

When I'm not developing...

I love playing live music, particularly drums but I've been known to strum a guitar and I also made my own didgeridoo! (Yes, really). I also love football and spend some of my time watching Everton FC, often from behind the sofa.
