About Me

about me

Hi, I'm Steve. I've been developing iPhone and iPad apps for the last three years based around education.

I’m a Entrepreneurial App Developer & Consultant with experience of the education market. I’ve attained a wealth of knowledge of consumer needs. My academic education is in computer science, and I spent a fair amount of time after graduation teaching - this has helped me to develop who I am and how I go delivering about successful projects.

I’m good at communicating with clients, developers and designers (those with and without technical knowledge). I listen and pride myself on a strong attention to detail.
Beyond coding, I enjoy attempting to play football, tennis and having fun in great company.


My Projects

For technical writing I've created a tutorial series over at Medium - Medium Profile which are certainly worth a look as they are getting promoted by publications including Better Programming and The Startup.


I publish a range of educational materials on TES, and I am a TES recommended author.


I developed my own website - Studeapps - to promote educational Apps and accompanying lessons have been used by over ten thousand teachers around the world.


If you are interested in educational technology do check out my blog.


Working with a designer I have also led creating the following Apps
