I’m a creative WordPress developer, consultant and designer with over 20 years experience.
I’ve lived in Banburyshire for an age, attending Oxfordshire School of Art & Design where I learnt my craft and then moving away to complete a degree in Graphic Design from Brunel University. I’ve worked for over 20 years on website, branding and print projects and have worked with 100s of large and small clients.
I also work as a freelance illustrator and have produced artwork for various magazines, Barclays Bank, Bibby, an Argentinian Social Network, New York-based creative agencies, lots of charities and other clients too many to mention.
I approach everything I do from a creative standpoint and have significant experience in all things digital – from Adwords to Website consultancy.
What I do.
My main job is as Managing Director and Head of Digital over at Toast, a design agency I co-founded in 1997. My work there is mainly WordPress-focussed and we plan, design and build websites for a wide range of clients.
My freelance work centres around WordPress consultancy, development and advising people on their existing or in-progress sites and how to get the most out of them.
Having run a successful agency for over two decades and worked across most design disciplines and 100s of projects, I like to think that I can bring a bit more experience to any project than your average ‘WordPress developer’.
Just give me a call.
Do you think something is wrong with your site; do you have concerns your SEO agency is ripping you off; do you just don’t know how good your site is?
Just give me a call – I am pretty generous with my time – a quick ten-minute call can often achieve far more than endless back-and-forth emails.
You can get me at the studio on 01295 266644 or on the mobile on 07879 420 506 (leave a message if I don’t answer).
I am far less cheesy than I look in that photo.
In my opinion, creativity is key in all areas of digital – from planning to site build.
With so many niche areas of digital, it can often be hard to find someone who can provide you with a 360-degree overview of your online offering.
You may find yourself having to reach out to several different agencies input on creative, development, maintenance, hosting and ongoing Search Engine Optimisation.
This creates a disjointed (and expensive) method of managing your website and digital activities.
My freelance WordPress consultancy work helps businesses and individuals appraise what is where and how to get the best for their websites.
