About me

WHAT I DO

I’m an experienced web developer with over 4 years working in the industry. I specialise in WordPress websites and front-end development but with my background in ethical hacking and web security, I’ve built various full-stack solutions for more complex web applications.

I consider myself a team player and love collaborating with other designers to create new and exciting things. I use a wide variety of tools in my work and am always learning new skills and ways to develop. Over the last 4 years, I have played significant roles in the design, development, and maintenance of over 50 websites, including personal clients, Rose&Co dental websites, and BlueCoo ecommerce websites.

My Work

FROM START TO FINISH

I’m passionate about creating great designs and developing them for a clean, lightweight user experience.
01. DESIGN.

Using a variety of tools such as Photoshop, front-end page builders and physical drafting, I produce high-quality design concepts that are based on thorough market research and tailored to the brief and requirements of the client.

02. DEVELOPMENT.

I build the majority of my websites using WordPress in conjunction with modern page builders including the Avada Builder, Elementor and WP Bakery, on a multipurpose theme such as Avada, Astra or Bridge. My websites are enhanced with integrations such as Google Cloud Platform APIs and Google ReCAPTCHA.

For special requirements I build custom web applications from the ground up using PHP, SQL databeses and JavaScript.

03. HOSTING & SEO.

I host my websites on Google Cloud servers with integrations to Cloudflare to give users the fastest experience possible and to ensure seamless reliability.

For search engine optimisation I provide a service including focused on-page keywords, targeted meta data and Schema.org structured data, including FAQ, organisation, review snippet and other search engine enhancements.

Skills

WHERE I THRIVE

I like to use a wide range of software, tools, and programming languages to build designs and web applications to ensure a versatile approach to any brief. I’m constantly sharpening my skills in the software I use and learning new software along the way.
