About

I’m passionate about designing great looking websites.

Background

My interest in design began about 1995, when I was promoting club nights & artwork was required for posters & flyers.

I then published a magazine & hired Will Smyth to design it followed by Keith Connolly. Their work was/is consistently amazing & both have been a big influence on my design style.

In 1999 I completed a Multimedia Design Course with Synergy Centres, a one year course in graphic design, web design, 3D, video & motion graphics including software training in Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightwave 3D, Dreamweaver, Flash, Director, Premier & After Effects.

I worked for a year as a Web Designer for Osarius, then 2 years as a Motion Graphic Designer for Molten TV. I became a freelancer in 2003, designing for print, web & film before specialising in web design around 2010.

I learnt HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript & WordPress development with the aim of being able to create dynamic websites without the need to hire a developer.

In recent years I’ve been hired by web design agencies for web design, front-end development, WordPress development, website management & email marketing campaigns.

I specialise in creating large-scale (250-500 page) custom websites with WordPress that look great, are easy to update, load quickly & are secure.

If you’d like to talk about how I can help your organisation improve your web presence & online marketing, please get in touch.
