Freelance PHP Web Developer

Professional Freelance PHP Developer

Web Development Experience

My web career began back in 1996, with my first 4 years spent as a freelance web designer, producing websites for various sectors of industry, sports companies and small businesses.

In late 2000 I was invited to join the global car rental company, Hertz, who were putting together a team to build and maintain their multilingual international car rental websites. I spent the first 7 years developing their core websites using HTML, ColdFusion, JavaScript and SQL Server.


Enter PHP and My SQL

As a side interest in around 2008 I began working with PHP and MySQL, producing dynamic responsive websites for personal use before being asked to produce websites for local businesses outside of my main role at Hertz.


Multi-lingual website management

In later years at the company I also took on management positions which included eCommerce project management, User Experience (UX), Usability Testing, User Acceptance Testing (UAT), Search Engine Optimisation, Business Analysis, web content management, graphics, etc.

Alongside the day to day management and maintenance of the core website in 28 languages, I worked on a multi-million dollar digital transformation with development teams from IBM and Accenture with travel to Florida, New Jersey and Texas.

I remained at Hertz until mid 2021 when I decided to leave during the covid pandemic and return to providing freelance web development services, and I subsequently began using the Laravel PHP framework.
