Introduction

People are always asking me for a long list of pretty much everything I've ever written, edited or project managed... Alright, they never do, but I've made one anyway and here it is.

If for some reason you don't want to see everything I've ever done, but would rather just see one aspect of my working life, you can use the tags at the bottom of each entry, the top navigation bar or the choices on the right-hand side to filter what you see. Enjoy!



Helped develop, write the questions for and edit an iPad quiz game designed to use the Gabble image database. (October 2013):
 
Pikipik
Find the link, guess the word and beat the competition in this addictive words and pictures game.



Gabble is striving to build a universal visual language to power next generation 'text-to-image' apps. Pikipik, released in October 2013, was our first picture/meaning game. I helped develop and test the app and write and edit the questions for the game.

Web Publisher for the Technology Strategy Board (since January 2013 to July 2013):
 
Technology Strategy Board (now InnovateUK)
The Technology Strategy Board is the UK's government-backed innovation agency designed to accelerate economic growth by stimulating and supporting business-led innovation.


I was part of a core team responsible for creating and managing content for the corporate website for the UK government's innovation agency. I also helped to develop the organisation's social media strategy.

I was instrumental with the redesign of the site when it was migrated to a LifeRay CMS platform. I helped populate content, find appropriate images, capture bugs, prioritise tasks (in JIRA), suggest development solutions, test user journeys and co-ordinated between the project lead, editorial and design teams to ensure a smooth transition for on-going users of the website.
