About Me

Hi! I'm Liam - a web developer and hobbyist musician. I have experience in professional web development spanning over 20 years, largely based in frontend work (HTML, CSS, Javascript and lately ReactJS, Next.js and Typescript), but with additional experience of backend technologies such as Perl, PHP, ASP Classic and ColdFusion.

Hendy Group website
  • The largest client that motors.co.uk's Flex car dealer platform has ever hosted
  • We took on their business with the initial remit of building sites for their car supermarket site (Hendy Car Store), their Group website and two franchises - Hendy Ford and Hendy Ford Commercial
  • Eventually, other franchises were included, ultimately spanning over 20, including Land Rover, Jaguar and MOKE
  • I handled the day-to-day maintenance of the project, earning me considerable praise from my contacts at Hendy.

2014 - 2024

  • Carbase have been hosted on the Flex dealer platform for a long while, and our partnership with them has seen them go from strength to strength
  • For the last five years, I've been the site's primary developer, incorporating numerous changes which have seen them collect an impressive array of awards.

2009 - 2013

  • While at Future plc, I was part of the team responsible for two high profile rebuilds (CyclingNews and T3), and the construction of several sites from scratch, including BikeRadar and the now famous TechRadar
  • Following a reorganisation at Future, I became the sole developer on the site for a few years, handling the incorporation of a number of big-ticket affiliate platforms, pulling in over £10,000 a month in revenue.


Liam's Song Library
  • A personal project of mine
  • Having composed over 100 songs since 1995 as a hobby, I've often imagined a means of storing the information about them in a database
  • This site, written using ReactJS, NextJS, TailwindCSS and Supabase, has given me the push to accomplish this goal - a database of my compositions, searchable by various filters which map behind the scenes to query parameters.
