Husband and father to two boys I am also a Certified Umbraco Developer (Level 2) based in Plymouth, UK and have worked with Umbraco since version 3.x in 2008. I have nearly 20 years of varied commercial experience within the industry with my main focus being on Umbraco, C# .Net and and competent in front end tools and practices but spend less time in that domain. In my limited spare time I am also a keen amateur photographer.
