With our clients growing our team had to grow too and two months ago we welcomed Ally Reid. Ally joins us as Senior Front End Developer but more importantly, our resident Long Island Ice Tea maker (we would say he's a cocktail connoisseur but that might be pushing it ;).
Boasting an impressive digital agency background, we're delighted to have Ally on board. He can't handle big lunches without a nap but the rest of the time, he's a ball of creative energy. So...let's find out a bit more about him...
What made you want to join our team?
I had known about After Digital for a while and always been impressed by the work the team were doing. I also wanted to join a larger team, build on my experience and work with some great clients.
Tell us more about what you did before joining After Digital?
I've always worked with computers and digital design since graduating. I've worked in video, animation, web design and finally found my calling in front end development.
Having worked in design and development, what are you bringing to the team?
I’ve worked on a variety of projects over the years so I’ve come across all sorts. I’ve had years of experience working on both small and large projects and I like to keep up to date with the latest trends and techniques. I think my skills complement the skills of the team and we work really well together.
What do you get up to in your spare time?
Apart from writing code I enjoy going out with friends, listening to music, stuffing my face and general fun times. (Friday Fun at Four loyal haha).
Do you have a party piece or any hidden talents? (All the party pieces will eventually come out at Friday Fun at Four)!
I can do a thing with my thumb, a tea towel and a wooden spoon. Has to be seen to be believed - I'm waiting on the right time to show you all though!
What is your biggest achievement in your career so far?
In my previous role we won an award for a large travel project that I worked on. It was a lot of front end work so I was really proud when we won.
Stranded on a desert island, which three items would you take?
A machete, a radio and some photos.
Which celeb would play you in a movie?
Apparently Michael Imperoli is interested in the role, I'm still in talks with his people.
What do you think you can bring to the After Digital team...
Professionally, I think the experience I have is a great asset as well as my commitment to to producing a high standard of work. I’m a really positive person, I’m never short of anything to talk about and get on really well with the rest of the team…
Quote / motto you live by...
Sorrynotsorry (He sure does love a sorrynotsorry moment)!
After joining the team two months ago, Ally has become an integral part of the After Digital family and we look forward to seeing what else he can bring to the team. Since starting, Ally has worked on a number of projects with some of our most prestigious clients (we can’t wait to show you)!
