I am an Award Winning Web Designer and Developer who has branched out into marketing media development in the last 4 years. I can design and build apps, create videos to promote the apps, then create another app to automate these videos from scripts, then target these at customers to buy the initial app I designed. YEH BOI!

I have a great attitude and over 17 years of commercial experience behind me. In a nutshell I am an honest, enthusiastic and creative individual who is not just passionate about my work, but everything I do. I am a team player who works well in whatever environment you plonk me in. I have always had the pleasure of working knee to knee with the C Suite in all of my roles. I am forever grateful for this. I am happy working with an agile methodology in a glass tower or ticking a to-do list on the back of a pizza box in a campervan . Same results.

I have a flair for understanding real life client problems. I deliver accurate technical solutions hidden away under user friendly and stylish on-brand interfaces. I understand people and I just want to remove friction and add happiness.

In the last few years of my career I have been focused on frontend development, design, UI/UX, branding, videos and niche marketing. I have a colourful past from kitchens to software engineering which allows me to understand and confidently interact with a range of people from technical teams to customers. My mexican and tapas hits hard too.

those who have put up with me for long periods of time:

ContactEngine / NICE


Mark Smith (CEO ContactEngine) said to me that when he was on a volcano discussing the acquisition with Barak Eilam (CEO NICE), that Barak said “What agency do you use for your brand and marketing?” The reply was “Oh! that’s just one guy, Danny Danger Desmond!” I have kept the head expansion under control since. I have been at CE literally from inception and my UI, apps, branding and videos form the integral backbone that got us snapped up. My boss calls me “King of Sexy”. No lawsuit needed.

Ledger Bennet Agency and DX2


I ran my own company (DX2) and had contract work with agencies as well as work for Mercedes, Smart Car and Autoprotect designing their apps. In this time I loved working with the talented people at the agencies and with such premier clients. However, I am too much of a people pleaser to chase money by kicking in doors, so I looked for an AI startup I believed in (ContactEngine).

Pohutukawa Coffeeshop / Desmond’s Saloon


I launched a cafe with my family as a side project. I did the marketing, branding, recipe design, hiring and worked the kitchen and bar in the evenings. I can assure you, you learn a lot about business, sales and clients in this setting. Covid kicked the crap out of that sadly.

CarShop


I was the lead frontend developer for their national UK used car supermarket. I developed their internal sales systems and their main website. Its unique features won us an award as the best used car website in the UK, beating AutoTrader. TAKE THAT! They also realised my idea of an automated photography turntable for our cars. After that, it all got very political in the office for some reason. The job was done so I went on an adventure. I loved that original team and still see them to this day.
