Hey, I’m Michael and I’ve just joined Fishtank where I’ll be leading their digital/web offering as Senior Frontend Developer. I am looking forward to my future working with the team here and with clients old and new.
Having been working in a large full-service agency in Leeds for the past 3 years I decided to make the move to Fishtank after seeing the new and exciting challenges that Fishtank and the role has to offer.
I began my interest, and later my career, in web development over 11 years ago whilst playing drums in a metal band where (here’s a tell of my age) I found myself re-skinning my band and other bands MySpace accounts. Fortunately, when my teenage dream of becoming the next Metallica didn’t happen, I found my true calling in web development.
After university I was asked to go back to the company I completed a year’s placement at while studying and in the time since, I have honed my craft in modern web development using a popular CMS platform many other development languages.
But all work and no play makes Michael a dull boy and so outside of work I still have an interest in playing music but most of all I am embracing family life having a 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son. Between standing on lego bricks and explaining why you need to eat your broccoli I enjoy watching anything Sci-Fi and going to see live bands.
Fishtank is my new home and I’m looking forward to getting to stuck in so if you need help with an existing website or if you’re interested in starting a new project with us, get in touch…
