More about me.

I'm a British freelance web developer based in the heart of London's tech hub, Shoreditch.

Over the last 10 years I've developed websites and web applications for a range of clients from startups to multi-national corporations all over the world.

Prior to freelancing, I worked at Blue State Digital in London & New York building web projects for governments, political campaigns, and corporations.

Currently I'm enjoying working with React, GraphQL, Node, Docker and Serverless on Amazon Web Services.

I founded Arctica, a specialist agency that focusses on building a select few web applications per year.

Arctica helps companies create purpose-built progressive web applications with user optimal experiences, perfectly tailored to business objectives.

You can hire me for contract roles in central London or freelance roles remotely, to discuss your project requirements and timelines please get in touch.


What clients say.

David is a very talented and knowledgeable individual, I would hire him without a second thought and he will be a hugely effective addition to any team/business.

David is a first class developer. I've worked with him on a number of high profile projects with quick turnarounds and he gets it right first time, every time.

Gregor Poynton - Partner, Portland Communications

David did a great job for us when I was at the RCN - he built us a couple of micro sites very quickly in ExpressionEngine. Would definitely use him again.

I would recommend David for anyone who is looking for a smart and creative developer who can quickly deconstruct complex problems and develop tangible solutions for delivery.
