I lead the community moderator team at Worldcoin (a blockchain-driven project) which draws on my foundational technical web expertise, in addition to utilising my exceptional written communication skills and cross-domain creativity applied to community activities and strategies. I wholeheartedly support the Worldcoin mission and the contribution that this project is making to the web3 ecosystem (privacy-preserving ‘proof of personhood’ as a decentralised utility).

Senior PHP Developer
Full Time

This represents my decade-long career as a PHP web developer for hire. During this time I delivered back-end web solutions via employment, contracts and ad-hoc freelance services. I worked with many talented developers and colleagues who helped shape my understanding of the web industry and how to create value. I became obsessed with objectives, processes and outcomes, which led me to transition into a web agency owner role (see Darwin Software above).
