A freelance front-end / WordPress web developer working in the industry since the turn of the millennium. Originally a dedicated Front End developer I also now build WordPress sites and themes. Depending on budget and requirements these can be anything from customisation of third party premium themes to completely custom themes built from the ground up (mmm, nice and fast as no bloat, no unnecessary / unused functionality etc., use of latest technologies for presentation such as css-grid, and so on). I also have some (more limited) experience with Drupal.
I like to produce high quality, high performance user experiences and whether using frameworks or bespoke solutions all my work has been fully responsive (looks good on all devices) for many years now.
I’ve been based in the heart of the Peak District between Sheffield and Manchester since 2007. Living in a rural location with a young family and being the household’s only driver I currently have a preference/need to be able to work on projects mostly remotely. This will likely change at some point in the future but not imminently.
Employment and project experience
2000-2007 - Lead Front End Developer for a Midlands based Web Agency.
Worked on projects for clients such as Vodafone, TNT, Merlin Entertainments, 3M and others.
2007-present - Freelance Front End Developer
Worked on projects for clients such as IKEA, UNHCR, Red Square Pictures and others that I’m less able to mention publicly due to working on behalf of agencies etc.
If you would like to see some examples of work I can facilitate that but cannot really show a lot of the work I have done for others publicly.
