Hi, I’m Amy

In addition to being a fairly decent cook, a fairly terrible (but enthusiastic) gamer, a connoisseur of ridiculously terrible movies (check out my other blog – Two Geeks One Blog), and a proud BrewDog shareholder, I also do a bit of the following…

Web

I have an MSc in Multimedia and Web and 5+ years experience in commercial web development – so I have a solid grounding in front-end development (HTML 5/CSS3) with jQuery, and CMS set-up/theming. I love a good tinker around. My passion is for usable, interactive, open-source sites and great design.

  • HTML/HTML5
  • CSS/CSS3
  • Javascript/jQuery
  • PHP
  • Version control – git/SVN
  • Social media integration
  • I also have some experience of using classic asp and .NET (my MSc project was written in .NET)

CMS

  • WordPress
  • Drupal 6/7
  • MODx Evo/Revo
  • I also have experience of maintaining Joomla sites, and some experience with Umbraco and Shopify

Social Media / Marketing

I’ve signed up to more social media sites than you can shake a stick at – if there’s something important happening in the realms of social media, I’ll know about it. I get a kick out of analysing user statistics and can advise when to post, where to post, and what you should post. I also have an MA (Hons) in English so I’m pretty adept at copywriting and SEO.

  • Copywriting
  • Email marketing

Photography

  • Events
  • Portraits
  • Travel
  • Photoshop/Lightroom
  • I also have some experience assisting with wedding photography
