About me

Hi there. I'm Derek Ahmedzai, a freelance web developer based in Bristol, UK.

I specialise in websites and web apps built using a mix of front end and back end technologies.

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Javascript
  • PHP
  • Drupal
  • Wordpress
  • Node.js
  • React
  • Gatsby
  • Snapchat lenses
  • Facebook camera effects
  • Twitter bots
  • Messenger bots
  • Chat bots
  • Machine learning
  • … and lots more!

I'm really interested in creative technology, including bots, digital art and creative uses of AI.

A bit of history

I started working on the web in 1999 at digital agencies in London. I did that for about 5 years.

Then I moved to Bristol and worked in agencies for another 5 years.

I went freelance full-time in 2009, to be able to work with a greater variety of clients and projects.

I love working with businesses and organisations directly, as well as collaborating with designers and agencies.

I'm especially interested in projects that do social good, especially projects that promote accessibility, diversity and inclusion.

Crowdfunding

I'm also the cofounder of the crowdfunding and investment company Fundsurfer.

We help people raise funds to achieve their creative and business goals - like putting on events, making films, recording albums, opening cafes, or even flying a Darth Vader hot air balloon!

Get in touch if you would like to find out more.

NFT PEEPS

I'm cofounder at the ethical NFT consultancy and agency NFT PEEPS.

We only work with environmentally friendly blockchains and NFT projects.

Ethereum might be the most talked about blockchain for NFTs, but it's also the most damaging for the environment.

We can help with consulting, planning, creating, minting, airdropping, developing smart contracts, etc.

Tiny Giant

I was the technical director at the marketing startup Tiny Giant.

We built exciting products and experiences using bots, voice, creative AI, augmented reality, neural networks and more.

Tiny Giant are residents at the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol.
