Share Design

Tokyo, Japan.

As well as working as a freelance developer in Japan, I have work 3/4 days a week for a single company, Share Design.

Share Design is a real estate company focussing on sharehouses. When I joined the company in August, 2010, we opened our first property, a former dormitory for the staff of a local newspaper, which had been converted into accomodation for young professionals, with 39 seperate rooms.

The company has grown rapidly over the past four years and at present manages 12 sharehouses (over 450 residents), a wine bar and a cafe.

My main tasks include developing and managing the following websites, which all include bespoke, bi-lingual content management systems in order to allow all staff members to rapidly update information, such as room availablity as efficiently as possible.

Felsted School

Essex, England.

Felsted is one of the UK's leading private schools and is located in Essex, England. I was hired by Felsted to develop a new bespoke Management Information System (MIS) that would allow for teaching staff, office staff, pupils and parents to access and produce and input relevant information such as attendance, medical, report and event data.

The system was launched in September 2010 and is utilized daily by over 970 students, 700 staff members and 1,500 parents.

The MIS has been extremely positively received and was described as 'Outstanding' during a recent (2011) Ofsted inspection.

I have a local copy of this system that I have been given permission to demonstrate if required.

Alwen Hough Johnson (AHJ)

London, England.

I was hired by AHJ during my Masters Degree to work remotely on an internet .asp based insurance system.

The system allowed both AHJ Underwriters and insurance brokers to process an application, from when it is first brought to AHJ’s attention, all the way through to a quote being produced and producing legally binding certificates.

October 2005 - October 2006

American International Group (AIG)

London, England.

I was hired by AIG during the work placement year of my degree to be the sole designer of an .asp based intranet system for The Lexington Insurance Company, who fall under the AIG umbrella.

The system essentially allowed employees to input data that was currently being entered into several different spreadsheet and other documents, producing identical documentation and certificates.

The system, originally intended for the Lexington’s London based Healthcare Department went on to be utilized by several other departments, by employees in London, Boston, Bermuda and Dublin.

The system was designed using ASP, MSSQL, VBScript and Crystal Report technologies.
