About

Hello, my name is Dale. I'm a Full Stack Developer based in Brighton, UK, specialising in software and web development.

I work at 15gifts, where I work as a Development Team Lead and Back End Developer. I also pick up the occasional freelance project and do my best to contribute to open source. I've also mentor at codebar.

I'm the father of two wonderful children and I am a neophyte to the philosophical school of Stoicism. I enjoy writing music, going hiking, doing bushcraft, writing code, and learning new things. I'm interested in philosophy and psychology, among many other interests, and I've recently started home brewing as a hobby.

Some of my specialities include:

  • Web and Software Development
  • Systems Design
  • Project Management
  • Process Design
  • Technical Documentation
  • Coaching and Mentorship
  • Developer Advocacy
