Hello. I'm Dean Clatworthy

I build websites for a living. PHP/MySQL, Javascript, CSS, HTML5

Greetings! I'm originally from England but now I live in Helsinki, Finland. I've a BSc. in Computer Science and I've been building things with computers now for as long as I can remember. I particularly enjoy building web applications - and I specialise in both back-end and front-end web application development. I have a Github profile, where you can see some of my code. You can also reach me on Twitter, or fill in the contact form and I'll try to mail you back.


I'm always open to exploring new professional opportunities. Find out a bit more about what I can do and my skills. Or head straight over to my LinkedIn profile.
