Russell Beswick

Solution Architect

I solve problems. Usually with code, always with logic and attention to detail. I've taken my decades of experience in the fields of IT and Web Development and focused them into three specialized service offerings...

Web Apps

Full featured web applications done right. Rich and interactive UI. Intuitive user Experience. Modern WebAPIs allow for some amazing features. The only limit is your imagination.


Self-contained, plug & play modules for your exisiting website or app. Fully isolated from the host page, no conflicts with existing page styles or scripts.


Scripts or utilities to automate workflow tasks. Data manipulation, reporting. Save time and hassle.

The last iteration of my website. Made use of lots of animations, shadows and lighting effects to create a stunning visual experience.

Single page, brochure style website for a local business in my area.


Pronounced items, this app's name stands for Inventory Management & Tracking System. An IT asset database utility with real-time record filtering. Tracks asset details, location, status and history. New assets can be imported in batches using a handheld barcode scanner to capture serial numbers. Cutom barcoded tracking stickers can then be printed to a networked or usb connected label maker or on sheets through a regular printer.


Sip.js, WebRTC & based call center operator and manager application. Runs on a Node.js back-end which communicates via WebSockets to a FreeSwitch server. Queue stats are pushed to a multi-headed management interface in real time. Users receive audible notifications when calls are routed to their station. Callflow scripts are interactive and change based on incoming call type.

Chat Widget

Floating chat window WebComponent. Self-contained module with all assets embeded for fast loading via CDN. Built for a client who provides cloud-based hotel concierge services to be embedded on their client's websites. Customizable config can be fetched from the server by clientId. Includes various message bubble template modules for delivering richly formatted responses.

Financial Calculators

With automatic formatting of numeric inputs to dollar ammounts and automatic calculation of results as you enter data. The "Mortgage Affordability Calculator" form emulates the PV function in Microsoft Excel. The "Personal Finance Statement" form allows for adding any arbitrary number of line-items to each section.

Card Manager

The scroll and icon design in this app were done by a third party artist but the app development was done by me. This Tool allows it's owner to build and print sets of game cards for a battle style of game similar to Magic The Gathering or Pokemon. Here's a demo video showing off the features in action. The final product is actually bundled as an Electron desktop app.

Spartan Service Record

Personal project for tracking Halo 4 matchmaking statistics. No longer active as H4 is all but dead now and none of my crew play anymore. I built this because the official stats website was a convoluted mess and it was way too slow to look up our opponents' records between matches.

Tangram Builder

An interactive SVG image used to design tangram puzzles.


Early alpha demo of a web based game engine that I'm currently working on in my spare time. It's much more impressive in action so here's a sample video.

I have a proven track record of excellence but don't take my word for it. Here's what a few of my clients have had to say...

Russell is a delight to work with! I'm a developer myself so I can assess the ability of another developer. I have found Russell to be top notch. He thinks deeply about a problem and comes up with very elegant / well designed solutions. He is very professional in his approach and I look forward to working with him again soon.

Russell is extremely prompt, professional, and proactive. More often than not, he thought of and addressed my requirements himself, sometimes even before I did. Highly recommended.

Russell voluntarily included an animated movie in his proposal to show me exactly what the final product would look like, while placing his bid. How often have you seen that happening in this sea of freelancers who copy paste their bids/proposals after reading the first paragraph of your job description?

I've been a web developer for a long time and worked with countless APIs and libraries over the years. I've seen the standards evolve and trends change many times in my career. I keep a close eye on the latest bleeding edge browser features so you can be sure that any project you commision from me will be leaps and bounds ahead of the competition.


You won't get any sphagetti code or div soup from me. I take pride in writing clean, descriptive, modular code using industry standard best practices.
