Hello, I'm Doug Lapsley

Full stack developer, designer and all round good egg


From front end UX design to back end coding, database design and server administration


Relational database design, build, and development.


Walkthroughs, product visualisations, characters, corporate loops and much more


Mobile app development, specialising in games.

Having worked with clients ranging from very large companies to individuals on a wide range of projects, I can turn my hand to coding just about anything. I am very focused, efficient, determined and a hard worker who likes a challenge. I particularly enjoy working with great people to produce great results.

Most notably I co-founded zondle (www.zondle.com), a games-based learning platform (web and mobile) that drew on education and neuroscience research, and that I helped grow to well over a million registered users. I was responsible for all technical aspects of the company, from front end UX, to back end code, database design, maintenance and replication, and server administration. I also handled customer and technical support and social media.

I also co-founded oodlü (oodlu.org). A social enterprise which launched in June 2018. Again, I built this completely from the ground up and currently manage all technical and most marketing aspects of the business.

I get on very well with people, am loyal and, whatever the project, I always want to do the best I can.

What I can do for you :)

“I have had the pleasure of working with Doug for the last 10 years. We have commissioned a number of 3D animation projects over the years and Doug always delivers beyond our expectation. His knowledge of film production is superb, always solving problems that come from the client with ease. Our last project was launching Got Talent, the worlds largest and most successful TV format, on you tube. You can see it here
