Originally a Manchester lass, I now live in beneath the lovely Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland with my wife and cat, Sidney! I continue to work with many clients throughout England and regularly visit home for meetings and to see the family.
I decided to go freelance 8 years ago, having spent 12 very enjoyable years working with several design agencies in Manchester and Bolton. The move to freelance albeit a scary one, has allowed me to work from much more sunnier climates, as we spent 2 years working from Spain...laptop in the garden style!
Having worked in the web industry since 1998 there’s not much I haven’t done in the world of web. From the old-school days of creating websites using tables, I have had to learn a number of new languages, new web techniques, and various frameworks, due to the fast paced progression of the web industry. I now have over 20 years experience in creating semantic, accessible, and cross-browser compatible websites using a variety of methods including HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP, ASP.Net, wordpress.
I enjoy helping clients achieve their goals by developing well-designed, thoughtful solutions to meet their requirements. I specialise in creating clean, usable designs, utilising the latest web technologies to provide a great user experience.
During this time I have worked on web projects for a range of clients whilst working with design agencies, including: BBC, Channel 4, O2, Kelloggs, Muller, & RNLI. This wealth of experience has taught me how to begin, carry out and launch a range of web projects.
Good client relationships are built on communication and respect between all parties (as well as providing a high standard of work!). I pride myself on being approachable and communicating in a 'jargon free' manner which my clients understand and appreciate.
In order to achieve your new website, I offer a complete website project solution. This includes scoping and assistance with your 'brief', project planning, information architecture and user experience, wireframes, design, and finally the development of the site.
