WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT

I’ve been developing websites for almost 17 years, exploiting new technologies as they emerge.

  • Front-end design
  • Back-end coding
  • Database creation
  • Database management
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) Management
  • Extensive experience with start-ups
  • Track record of working remotely
  • Long history of on-site contracting
  • Training & quiz  site with over 12,000 users

WORDPRESS CUSTOMISATION

Since 2011 a lot my website work has involved building and customising existing WordPress themes, as well as building and modifying  Wordpress plug-ins so they work exactly as the client wants.

Advantages of WordPress

  • Accelerated development cycle
  • No need to re-invent the wheel
  • Vast choice of existing themes to choose from
  • Security updates from Wordpress community
  • Large library of plug-ins for extra functionality
  • Swap in a completely new look with a new theme
  • Back-end comes already complete

MOBILE APPS

I’ve been developing apps for the iPhone and iPad since 2012. In that time I’ve released one free app, two paid apps and am currently working on two further apps for a client. I started my first Android app a few months ago.

PHOTOGRAPHY

I’ve been taking photographs since I worked for my college newspaper, back in the mid 90s. I moved from film to digital when the Canon EOS 20D came out, and it’s been digital all the way since then.

I’m especially interested in the technical niches of photography, like high speed, macro, timelapse and gigapixel panoramas.

Recently I’ve been doing a lot more portrait work which is a trend I intend to continue.

VIDEOGRAPHY

I’ve been shooting video since the Canon 550D DSLR came out, and since then I’ve shot promotional videos, and worked as 2nd Director of Photography on the indie horror movie Lord of Tears.

I share my video work on vimeo and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s hitrecord.org, where it has been included in the 2013 season of hitrecord on tv, shown on the Pivot tv channel in the US.

FROM MY CLIENTS

We’ve engaged with Marc on multiple Web Application projects, large and small. He has always been a pleasure to work with. He understands the creativity and attention to detail we require and is determined to get it right. He has great problem solving abilities and is willing to investigate and suggest new technologies to enable something to happen.John Gavin, Founder/CEO of design studio TrueOutput
I engaged Marc to build the initial Scurri prototype and beta site and he managed and implemented the technical build of that phase of the development. Marc is the type of guy that can take a project concept, turn it into a specification and implement. At the time I had so much going on it was hard to keep on top of everything, but having Marc on board meant I could rest assured that the technical side was happening. He is very flexible and practical in his approach. He handles ambiguity well and never gets stressed. He works tirelessly to meet deadlines. We still use Marc frequently, and I have no problem recommending him.Rory O'Connor, CEO & Founder of Scurri
Marc worked on the Training Design team in Talk Talk when i was a trainer there. Marc’s work ethic was second to none and was always the point of contact for help with technical knowledge, systems information and web development ideas and creativity. Marc was responsible for creating and designing a web-based training academy that I still use in my current role. This system allows us to store manage and develop training material in order to support our business needs.Amanda Duggan, Training Designer - TalkTalk
Marc’s work as a training designer was always accurate, extremely well written and always on time. His greatest asset was the value added work he did for the dept’ like the creation of a bespoke Learning Management System, implementing an automated solution for a company wide training competition, and data analysis of test results; saving the company a fortune!Colin Stebbing, Client Services Director at Blue-Sky Performance Improvement
Marc created stunning videos of our Christmas lighting projects last year. He listened to what we wanted and created something even better than we had imagined. He was enthusiastic and willing to work hard to achieve the best results for us. I look forward to working with him again.Colin Stebbing, Client Services Director at Blue-Sky Performance Improvement
Marc designed and developed both our Company Website and our Intranet site. Marc is a very capable developer who can work on his own initiative. He played an active role in the design and delivery of both sites and was able to cope well with all challenges and demands put before him. I have turned to Marc for a number of projects and he has always delivered great resultsCaitriona Hanley, Design & Project Management at MK Illumination Ireland
