Interactive Periodic Table

Project 2017

Originally created in 2015 (and visually freshened up in 2017), this is an interactive, fully responsive periodic table of the elements which plugs into the Wikipedia API to pull in additional information and images for each entry. This tool is used by teachers around the world, and is even linked to from the websites of a number of major colleges and universities.

QuizBear

Project 2017

A Facebook Messenger bot which serves up a daily 5 question general knowledge quiz to hundreds of users. QuizBear is a webhook, written in PHP, which communicates in real time with Facebook's Graph API and was my first exploration of any form of "AI" bot or conversational interface. QuizBear stores basic user information on its own server, which allows me to track users' progress and statistics.

Website Launch Checklist

Project 2017

An interactive application containing an extensive to-do list to follow when launching a new web project, based on a handwritten list which I had been updating and consulting for years. In an effort to try and draw search traffic to the site, I also wrote a number of articles for the site (expanding on individual list items) which has been mildly successful.

Maglev

A very simple, free to use, modular website template. It was picked up on social media and web design blogs on a number of occasions, leading to it being downloaded thousands of times and still getting a constant stream of traffic to this day.

Get Out Glasgow

Project 2013 - 2015

A guide to local bars, restaurants and things to do which, at its peak, enjoyed 20,000 unique visitors per month and over 10,000 followers on social media. I no longer post regularly, however I do carry out minimal work to keep the most popular pages up to date (my "Best Bars in Glasgow City Centre" post, for example, still receives in the region of 5,000 views per month, all from search).

IntoRussia

Job 2012 - 2014

As Web Manager for Russian travel specialists IntoRussia, my role encompassed everything from graphic design, to web development (front and back end), to content and social media management. As such a varied role, it gave me experience of a lot of different disciplines which really cemented my love for front end development, an area which I then went on to specialise in at my next position.
