About Me

A Foot In The Door

Hi guys, my name’s Lee.

I come from a town called Kirkby, just on the outskirts Liverpool. If you’ve heard of this place before please, don’t judge me too harshly.

When I started working for Liverpool City Council (LCC) back in 2014, I didn’t have much commercial experience. This changed soon after joining, as this gave me the opportunity to work in a team of professionals, allowing me to see first-hand how things were done without taking hours and hours of lectures. I found that collaborating with others, not only helped with my confidence and work ethic, it also enabled me to work much more efficiently.

Apprentice With An Edge

I’ve been involved in many different projects, from working on the official Liverpool City Council website and Intranet, to creating screensavers, posters, and videos. You can check out the humans.txt file here.

Due to my versatility and hard work over the last 2 years, I was awarded the Liverpool Apprentice with an Edge 2016. This award does not prove that I’m the best at any particular subject. However, it does show that I’m 100% committed to my work, and that I’m more than willing to undertake further training when given the oppertunity.

Skills & Experience

Media Queries: Although the likes of Bootstrap can help with creating responsive websites, it’s always important to know how Media Queries work. This is something I frequently use, especially when creating a website from scratch.

Magento: As well as the above applications, I have some experience with the Magento CMS. Unfortunately, I didn’t learn how to properly develop for this system, as I wasn’t provided any training or instructions. However, I do know my way around the system on a basic level and I am confident I can work on it.

Flash: I can still use Adobe Flash if required to do so, but due to the lack of online support, this is something I feel will be completely dropped in the near future.
