We sat down with Sam to find out more about our head of development...
So Sam, what’s your background?
I have a BSc(Hons) in Multimedia Technology from Leeds Metropolitan Uni and have, over the last 15 years, worked in-house and in agencies in both development and managerial roles.
Tell us a little bit about what your day-to-day job involves…
As head of development at r//evolution, my day-today work involves planning website projects, working on systems and procedures, working closely with our clients, helping them learn how to use their websites and of course, developing new websites for our wide ranging client base.
What’s the favourite part of your job?
While I really enjoy the technical aspects and challenges of building websites, setting a website live for a happy client is definitely a highlight of my role.
What is your favourite thing about r//evolution?
The r//evolution team is made up of great people who work hard to help achieve goals for clients
Which social media platform could you not live without?
I use Facebook a bit...
Where do you get your news?
The BBC generally.
What would you do if you didn’t work in web development?
I have no idea, it’s all I’ve ever done!
Who would play you in a film about your life?
George Clooney - I like coffee and so does he!
What’s your favourite thing about the North East?
The bridges and the Newcastle Gateshead quayside, and the fact that the beautiful coast is not far away is certainly a bonus.
Do you have a favourite restaurant/place to dine in the region?
I’ve only recently returned to the North East after living in Leeds for a number of years so I’m not sure yet - I’m still trying them all!
