Hi there, my name's Jim Balchin and I'm a Freelance Web Developer based in the Bristol/Southwest area of the United Kingdom. I love building engaging, standards compliant websites and web applications using CakePHP.
I'm very enthusiastic about MVC frameworks, open source technologies and website accessibility. I take pride in my work and strive to deliver quality products at all times.
I'll happily work for media agencies, corporate or private clients. If you need a website, ecommerce store, CMS or a larger bespoke system, get in touch and we can discuss your project.
I have over 7 years experience working in a commercial environment (both agency and corporate). I most recently worked for Focus New Media in Bristol. Over the 3 years I worked at Focus I was involved in many high level projects for local authorities, third sector organisations and corporate clients.
Please see the projects page for some examples of my recent freelance work.
I've worked on quite a few high profile projects during my agency days. Examples of these are available to interested parties on request due to client privacy.
If you're the coding type, feel free to check out some code snippets here on my web development blog
