• Hello, I am James Sarjeant

    Web Developer & Photographer

    Working as a web developer since 2009 I've worked with agencies and freelance developing sites and intranets for clients. Projects have ranged from brochure websites right through to stock control and CRM business systems from London to Brussels and beyond. My language of choice is PHP but regularly drop in some Javascript (jQuery amongst other frameworks), HTML5 and CSS3 for good measure.

    In my spare time I teach swimming and lifesaving at the East Kent School of Lifesaving in Canterbury. I also enjoy playing games on my PS3, and I am a keen photographer with regular uploads to my Flickr page.
