Les Cochrane

Hello, I'm Les Cochrane. No, I'm not the French Scientific Library, but thanks for asking.

I've been designing & building stuff for the web for over 20 years. I'm a lot happier about that than I look in the photo ->

I've built apps & sites for a pretty wide range of businesses from DJs through to global corporations. I was the tech & product co-founder (or Tech Puppy) of BorrowMyDoggy, and although I don't have anything to do with the day-to-day running of the business now, I'm proud of what we were able to achieve before I moved on.

Currently, for my day job, I'm Lead Product Engineer for an ad-tech startup called Audigent. I'm helping them build the back & front end of a number of web applications using a wide range of tech. Amongst friends I'd use the term full-stack developer & designer to describe my day job, but find it's too simple a label to cover such a myriad of sins skills.

I'm also pretty active building apps & projects in my spare time, as well as working as a professional actor from time to time.

You can see more of my CV & work experience on LinkedIn.

If I'm not geeking out or acting, then you'll probably find me haring around country roads on my bicycle, or mucking about with making music.

It's always good to hear from people - you can reach me on Twitter, or by email (my first name at this domain).
