BSc (Hons) in Computer Science – Hull University (3 years)

Extended Diploma in ICT Level 3 – East Riding College (2 years)


I work remotely from my home in Yorkshire, United Kingdom for clients based all around the world.

With all website development projects, I will work with you to visualise and create a website design that best suites your brand, business and target audience. Alternatively, if you already have a design created by yourself or another designer, I can code and develop this into a high quality, responsive website for you. During the website design process, you will be able to view live changes and provide feedback via my private design preview tool.

In most cases, I will code and develop a new theme for your website from scratch (starting with a simple framework) based on your requirements. This is generally better for site performance and flexibility. In some cases, an existing theme may be customised if you have one in mind already, or your budget is limited.

I will provide you with a professional estimate, proposal, invoice and contract for your project.

Upon completion of the project, you will be given full access & ownership to your website code and database.
