I’m a web developer, print designer and IT professional based in the UK.
I’ve been involved with online services since 1995 when I built my first static HTML website. I’ve been working and designing in print media since 1998. I then built my first WordPress website in 2005.
After almost 15 years in the Charity/IT sector, I became self-employed in 2009 and then formed my Limited company in 2011.
I nearly always build websites using WordPress because this has proven to be the most powerful, effective and appropriate tool to give my clients exactly what they want. From a super simple website through to more complicated requirements. Customers love retaining ultimate control over maintaining and developing their online web presence.
Using my visual skills, I also produce high-resolution, print-ready artwork. This includes business cards, flyers, annual reports, technical documents, in fact anything, right up to large-format pop-up banners, displays and PVC canvasses. I run the latest versions of Adobe Creative Suite, so can work with most files that are sent to me.
I like to create sense out of chaos. Working with an initial idea and turning it into a logical, clear, structured design. After all, effective communication benefits everyone.
Having worked in the industry for a long time, I also offer a variety of related services to both individuals and organisations. These include web hosting support, domain names, branding, training and database development to name but a few. Please see the Services page for more detailed information.
I have personal experience of working in the UK private, public and charitable sectors, all three of which have their own set of unique challenges.
I’m a member of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and have professional indemnity insurance.
