Hi, my name is Stephen Garside and I am a Dad, Husband and Freelance Web Developer living in Halifax, West Yorkshire in the UK. I have two daughters, Roxanne and Alicia who, together with my wife Donna make sure most of my time is consumed! My hobbies include playing the piano (not very well!) and attempting to keep fit, whilst undoing all my work by blowing the froth off the occasional pint.
My current role is a senior web developer at Marshalls PLC, working on enterprise level websites, web apis, phone apps and web based business systems. In my spare time I offer freelance web development for businesses in Halifax, Huddersfield and Leeds, and I also enjoy dabbling with new web technologies and writing my own websites, some of which you can see in my website portfolio.
I have a real passion for search engine optimisation (SEO) and regularly impart my knowledge on anybody who will listen in my SEO blog. I have also done a lot of work in the web virtual reality arena, together with work on artificial intelligence (AI) and bots. You can read more about this in my web development blog.
Take a look at a selection of my recent websites including Wozere, a location based social media platform. Also, at the cutting edge we have 360Jungle, an Online Virtual and VR Tours website using the ThreeJS framework.
