Gavin has been building front-ends to software applications using the .Net Framework for the last four years. Using C#/XAML for the majority of his work, he has carried those skills on to building his own set of window store / windows phone applications. Gavin often attends developer events, expanding his own knowledge in the fast paced world of IT, and lending a helping hand to developers needing a little direction navigating the world of design. Since graduation from university a decade ago, Gavin has dedicated his time to the study of the many factors influencing human usage and reaction to software application. Art, design, sound and coding name a few but certainly not the least of his tools on his personal quest to find the basic truths behind why we like and use the things we do. Gavin currently operates as a freelancer, implementing user interfaces for .Net applications and assisting in forming the initial concept and design of those interfaces. After completing a project, Gavin can be found around the nearest city for a bout of street photography for some time with his much loved camera.
