I am a contract and freelance software developer based in York, UK. I provide tailored advice and bespoke software development with a particular interest in working with local charities. I always start with a free consultation and zero pressure. If you choose to work with me, I can provide a complete design and development service or work with other specialists to achieve the best outcomes for you and your organisation.
About my software
As an independent developer I create bespoke systems to suit each client's needs, from data management to productivity tools and more. I focus on security, reliability and ease of use. I future proof my software by building on modern web technologies, which work independently of client operating systems, as well as following industry standards and best practices.
Made for good
I aim to use my software development expertise to help good causes. That means helping charities, social movements, non-profits and other local organisations do more by providing a cost-effective bespoke software service.
Yours for good
I don't believe in locking customers in. When you buy bespoke software from me, it's yours for good. I'll let you judge how good my service is and provide everything you need to switch providers in case you decide to change.
I understand that investing in bespoke software can be a daunting prospect. That's why I promote modular design and treat software development as an iterative process, rather than a one-off transaction. In this way I minimise your commitments without sacrificing quality or the overall potential of your software project.
Flexible and Accommodating
I approach each client with openness and flexibility, adapting to their needs and constraints. By providing bespoke solutions for specific organisational needs, I ensure that my software accommodates its users rather than asking users to accommodate the software.
Charities and Non-Profits
People often look for charitable discounts. I don't offer one because the charitable sector is my target market. By understanding the unique needs and funding models of charities, I'm able to provide a premium quality service in a way that is affordable without being cheap.
My flexible approach means you can include development costs in future funding bids, supporting each of your funded projects with specialised software modules that work together as a single coherent system.
Businesses and Individuals
Not all good causes have to be charitable. If your work benefits society or your profits are invested in the local economy, I'd be delighted to help you succeed! By taking my flexible approach to software development, you can benefit from reduced risk by investing gradually in bespoke software as your profits grow.
Whatever your goals are, if you need a bespoke website, database or application to achieve them, why not get in touch to see what I can do for you?
Help and Support
I'm contactable by phone or email and always happy to arrange a meeting for more detailed discussions. For general enquiries, I try to keep to regular business hours of 9am - 5pm (British time), but of course I will endeavour to resolve any urgent issues as soon as they arise.
