Let's build something remarkable together

Hi! I'm Giles. I'm a software developer at a company called thoughtbot where we help businesses design, develop, and grow their products.

Previously, I was a designer and led iOS development at Fetchnotes (acq. by Drift), building software to help people organize their lives. In the past, I've designed and developed web and iOS applications for numerous fantastic clients, both local and international.

I'm available for design, iOS, and front-end web consulting.

I'm available for freelance web design and development, mobile app design and development, product design/strategy, UI/UX design, technical architecture consulting, and platform/workflow training.

You can browse some of my selected work or read some code if you're into that kind of thing. If you're curious about my experience in any particular field or with specific technology/framework, please don't hesitate to ask.


My hourly rate varies based on a number factors including complexity project scope and number of hours.

Please get in touch if you're interested in working together.
