hello@lezlea.co.uk

I'm Lezlea,
and I work remotely
while following my love of scuba diving,
motorbikes, and being active in nature.

I'm an Interactive Creative Developer

With 10 years of Industry experience I have a wealth of knowledge across a wide variety of projects -

Highly Interactive custom built applications across web, desktop, touch-table, kiosk, outdoor displays, video walls, and other engaging technologies.

Creative thinking to bring your vision to life; applying the same logic across different coding languages, tailored to your needs, pixel perfect, and built with love.

Variety is the spice of life, and I have loved the freedom to explore a lot of different areas of development and change my main focus throughout the years. I am currently focusing on React for web applications, Wordpress Elementor for quick turnaround websites, and of course still enjoy creative web banner development.

Wordpress Elementor / Quick Turnaround Websites

There's something beautiful about building a website that empowers your solo-preneur client to easily update as they please, meaning they are no longer financially tied to a developer.

With Elementor it's easy to build a custom theme, page templates, or unique custom elements to make your site best suit your needs.

I can include a basic 1-1 training, but Elementor is incredibly intuitive. Hosting and Mail setup can also be provided!

Elementor Page builder makes it quick to build responsive and mobile friendly websites, and so you can have the website of your dreams in no time!

Interactive Web Applications / Full Stack Development

I have 4+ years of development experience building fullstack products from scratch, developing and integrating APIs, working with a variety of databases and clould platforms such as Amazon AWS.

I initially worked with Meteor JS and MongoDB, and now with React.

I've always thrived working with libraries and external APIs such as Google Maps API, Google Markers, Facebook Graph API, Instagram Graph API.

Key words: AWS Lambda, Node.js, JQuery, RESTful APIs, PostGres, Redux, Router, Enzyme, NPM, and of course HTML, CSS, and Javascript!

Interactive Tables / Kiosks

I custom build multitouch table and video wall Air applications combining touch gestures with physics based animations to create stunning UI experiences. I can integrate with APIs such as object recognition or Kinect to create a highly interactive experience.

Using Gestureworks, Windows Touch, TUIO, Air, AS3, Kinect, Tangible Engine.

Banner Development

Beautifully animated hand coded HTML5 Banners developed to your specification. I build Rich media banners with video, expanding banners with games or image galleries, utilize Greensock for animations, and create animated backup gifs.
I quickly create multiple sizes and variations such as languages, and can even add dynamic content.
Using DoubleClick, Sizmek, Eyeblaster, Flashtalking, Google, or standalone.

Facebook & Instagram applications / Social APIs

I build applications integrating with the Facebook Graph API or Instagram API whether that be Login, Facebook Messenger, Posting to a users wall etc. I can help you through the Facebook approval process for any required permissions.
I can work with other Social APIs such as Twitter, or Social Share Buttons.

Games

I really enjoy building HTML5 games, from simple games built in a few days to more complex multi-level dynamic games. I can work from your ideas and with your design team, or concept my own and work out the best ways to add viral elements along with Leaderboards, and Social Sharing such as Facebook or Twitter - so do get me involved early if you can!

Banner Development

I have always been a creative sole enjoying the animation element of banners, but I also enjoy figuring out the most efficient way to do something aka building the same banner in various sizes!
I can create banners to suit your needs:

I am a mentor with Thinkful

It has honestly been one of the most rewarding 'side jobs' I have ever done and I truely love helping students understand JavaScript, learn how to solve problems, how to best approach client requests, and be for them in whatever other capacity they need.

What is Thinkful? - Thinkful teaches students how to become equipped for the world's next workforce with fast paced, job-ready programs in software engineering, data science, data analytics, and design.

My Working Methods


My key traits lend well to remote work; I'm a naturally organised person and believe clear communication is vital. I like to keep clients up to date with progress and communicate through whatever methods suit best. When building games or interactive pieces where designers have concepted the idea, I like to keep them in the loop and show progress frequently so that feedback is continuous.


Work History


I worked full time for 6 years in a few agencies across London UK, I loved being part of a team and integrating with the full process from idea conception to build. I moved freelance and for the next 5 years worked in numberous Agencies as a freelance developer, loving the diversity of projects. Over the last few years I've mainly been working remotely from Google Campus in London or from co-working spaces in Indonesia. I've been continuing to work for previous clients but I've also worked with start-ups, on my own Software as a Service, or remotely for clients in the UK, Europe, Dubai, and Australia.

I have worked with Somo on a few touchtable applications, working closely with their designers to come up with the best usability and interactivity depending on the content needing to be displayed.
