Hello, I'm Martin

Learning full-stack web-development and digital illustration

I am a retired Civil Servant based in Christchurch, Dorset. While working at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, I created and managed databases to monitor housing and planning statistics. I also worked with mapping and spatial analysis tools such as ArcMap and QGIS. Since retirement I have been learning web-development and digital illustration.

I am available to develop web-sites for community groups. I would work for free or at very low rates to meet the needs of limited budgets. This would help me build a portfolio that I can use for future working opportunities.

You can find out more about me by visiting my profile page.
