Web Design & Development

When I’m not flying around on a snowboard I am a freelance website designer and developer, and have worked on many varied and exciting projects.

I work with HTML, CSS, PHP, jQuery, WordPress and Expression Engine to name a few, and am always looking to learn and improve my skills and language knowledge. I am always open to taking on new projects, just drop me a line.

Have a look at my Portfolio to see some of the sites I’ve worked on, and if you have any questions, would like a quote, or just want to send me a message then please head on over to the contact page to get in touch.


Design & Development Projects

Project builds I have taken from scratch with the client. These have been taken through design and structuring to a fully coded and functional website.

Web Development

Projects I have worked on as either part of a team, or as a freelance developer. Normally sites that are already live and are looking for extra functionality or content.

This is just a selection of the work I have been involved in, if you'd like to talk further about your web design or development needs then please don't hesitate to get in touch.
