About Me

Hello! I'm Ross, a front-end developer with over a decade of experience. Originally from Glasgow, I am based in Madrid and work with clients from various locations including the UK. I make fast, accessible, modern web apps & sites, working alongside some super talented designers and agencies.


The projects I work on range from bespoke web presences built for small companies and individuals, to larger jobs involving well-known companies and organisations like the ones shown below.

They include websites, web apps, e-commerce stores, JavaScript development, HTML emails, and other digital projects concerning front-end technologies and/or content management.

You can browse through a short selection of my recent work below. Have a new project you think I could help with? I'd love to hear about it! Get in touch and let me know your requirements.
