Hello.

I'm Leighton, an iOS developer and full-stack web developer with an excellent eye for detail with 7+ years web and 2 years iOS experience.

This has allowed me to work with major brands such as Rocco Forte Hotels, Jaguar Land Rover, and Procter & Gamble.

I love to make things, and make them well.

  • I write easy to understand and well commented code
  • I develop with MVVM and Coordinator patterns
  • I develop using TDD
  • I have great problem solving skills
  • I have an excellent eye for detail
  • I communicate well and can be the client contact
  • I work within a team, or solo
  • I manage external dev teams as well as support junior devs
  • I work agile and don’t stress easily (think sprints & tight deadlines)
  • I am loyal, dedicated, and driven
  • I learn quickly and intentionally put effort into self-improvement

Skillset.

Me.

I love to watch and play cricket, to ride my bike, to be outdoors, to hike mountains, to play in the snow, to travel, to look after my health, to play board games, and to be with my wife, my friends and family.

This year my main focus outside of work is about challenging myself mentally and physically through the sport of triathlon. I have two Olympic races over the summer, and then I’ll be racing a half Ironman in September. I am super excited, a little scared, and have been loving the triathlon journey that I’ve been on the past 6 months.
