Freelance developer and technical lead who makes award-winning websites and applications for brands, charities and individuals.
I also like a bit of adventure. In the past few of years I've hitch-hiked an aeroplane, sailed across an ocean and cycled the entire length of a continent. Just for the hell of it.
My expertise is web application development and user interaction in which I have several years' experience at both a client-side and agency level. My current skillset is as follows:
My name is Robert Sargent and I’ve been working in London as a developer and technical lead in digital media production since 2005. My experience spans a number of sectors including advertisting, mobile and e-learning.
I've worked in both a full-time and freelance capacity with several leading studios such as B-Reel, Hi-ReS!, SapientNitro and Syzygy on campaigns and interactive experiences for the likes of Burberry, Microsoft, Nike, Nokia, O2 and Warner Music.
In order to satisfy a craving for working outdoors I volunteer at a farm in South London as a vegetable grower. I regularly sail and scuba dive and I am obsessed with cycling and bicycles. I ride with the London Baroudeurs, a club I participated in founding a few years ago.
I'm very curious about the world, its places, people and cultures. As a traveller I'm probably a little more adventurous than most. In the past few years I've sailed 6000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean and embarked on a solo expedition to cycle 10,000 miles from Colombia to Tierra del Fuego.
Travelling in this way has taught me the value of tolerance, adaptability and self-reliance and brought me closer to the people and cultures I encountered along the way. Some of the photography from that journey is featured on this website.
