About me

I've been a freelance web developer since 2005, specialising in Wordpress since 2008 and Magento since 2010. Over the years, I have worked on a huge variety of projects for all different types of client. These days, almost all of my work is done for digital agencies in London. However, I'm just as happy working with a brand directly as long as requirements are clear and concise.

Most new projects bring new challenges and new technologies. This has allowed me to build experience in a wide range of development and collaboration tools, and I've never failed to pick up something new when required. I'm more than familiar with working as a senior wordpress or magento developer in large distributed teams or completely alone.

If you have a project you would like some help with, or even if you just want to find out a little more, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Featured projects

As most agencies prefer me not to feature the Wordpress or Magento development work I did for them, I'm unable to show a full project history here. So, I've chosen a few projects that were commissioned directly by businesses. If you would like to see some of the Wordpress and Magento development work I've done for agencies, please get in touch!

  • Grunt

A responsive Wordpress build based on designs supplied by the client - a design agency in London.

The user experience requirements called for a fairly heavy dose of jQuery animation, with elegant use of Wordpress custom post types and fields to make the content intuitive to manage.

The client was very satisfied with the outcome and has since commissioned a number of other Wordpress projects.

Following a hugely successful redesign I completed in 2012, I was hired to carry out a full rebuild of this Magento website in May 2016.

The new Magento template was built from the ground up and a number of custom Magento extensions were developed in order to improve the user experience and make the site easier to manage.

In the first month after the rebuild, the client saw a substantial increase in sales which paid for the development work and then some.

As part of a campaign to increase their presence in the water industry, the client commissioned a custom microsite to support an advertising campaign.

Due to extremely tight deadlines and lack of need to manage the content, a flat site was chosen over Wordpress to keep costs down and provide maximum speed.

The project was delivered on time and on budget, allowing the client to hit their advertising deadlines. Initial response has been very positive!

A custom Wordpress microsite to support the launch of tomfoolery's in house brand - metier.

Creative direction was supplied by the client and custom post types were used to simplify the management of the content, despite the complex nature of their categories.

The brand launch was a success and the client has enjoyed strong sales in a competitive market place.

I was commissioned to do a full rebuild of an aging Magento website in summer 2015, with only logos and colours supplied by the client.

The new Magento template was built from the ground up and a number of custom Magento extensions were developed to meet complex fulfilment and content management requirements.

Since the new Magento site was launched, the client experienced a strong uplift in sales which paid for the development work in a matter of weeks. It's an ongoing relationship, so updates are likely!

This is a completely new venture for one of my long standing clients, tomfoolery. This Wordpress site showcases some of the more expensive items they offer to select clients from around the world.

I developed a custom 360° product viewer along with a number of custom Wordpress extensions, custom post types, and custom fields to make managing the content intuitive.

It's early days still, but it looks as though it's going to be a big success.
