My career can be split into two phases. After university, I became a videogames developer before transitioning to the web.
### Current career phase - Web developer
#### Evosite (April 2012 - April 2018)

Head of development
My main responsibility has been to develop Evosite's bespoke OOP PHP framework, currently powering 100+ sites. Our ecommerce platform processes £20m+ in transactions per year.
In the time with Evosite I have helped the company grow from procedural PHP developed directly on the server, to a modern, best-practise development agency. Along with development, my responsibilities include
