This Demanding Life brings you beautifully crafted websites.

Utilising 15 years of marketing experience, 13 years of website design and 7 years of uninterrupted WordPress development, I build websites which will get your audience’s attention.

Whether you’re a small business,  education establishment, a charity, looking to start a blog, launch a membership course or an online store you can relax knowing I have experience with all these different industries and know what will help your website stand out and convert leads into sales.

My knowledge extends beyond the usual design and build of websites, to include marketing, Social Media strategy and business development. I also know about GDPR compliance so when you’re signing up to a beautiful, handcrafted website with me, it will be unique to you, search engine optimised, completely compliant and ready to wow your audience.



WordPress is the number one platform for building a website. With over a million available plugins WordPress websites can grow with your business. Whether it’s adding an online shop, a blog, launching a course, hosting gated content or creating a membership site, no site is too big or too small for WordPress to handle.


Wanting to sell a physical product but worried you’re not technically literate enough to run an online shop? Looking for a one stop shop to fulfil demands, handle inventories and even have orders automatically fulfilled and shipped by suppliers? Shopify could be the perfect platform for you.

Custom Sites

You may want something a little out of the ordinary. Something built with a CMS you can easily adapt and understand. Or you may want to work on a different platform such as SquareSpace or Wix but need help with the design. We offer a custom design and build service giving you exactly what you ask for.

What you can expect

Every website I build is unique to the individual who has commissioned it. All my websites are created from the ground up and I don’t use demos or pre-built pages when creating websites. In short this means that your website is as unique as your product and service.

When we agree to work together we spend time exploring your idea/business and behind the scenes processes so I can build a site which has a stunning online presence and also has a management system to suit your needs. This can include invoicing software, stock taking systems, sales funnels, newsletter add-ons and online payment systems.

I like to keep you informed. When we work together you can expect to know timescales for the design and build plus be kept up to date on a weekly basis of how your site is progressing.

Whether you’re working on your first ever website or are redesigning an existing site I have the experience to guide you through the many options available to make your website perform exactly how you want it to. I will support you in choosing the best applications to serve your administrative needs as well as creating designs which ensure an excellent user journey, encouraging your clients to engage with the content on your website.

About Me

I have worked in marketing and on websites since the early 2000s when websites were a new concept and dial up internet was still a thing. In late 2016 I took the plunge and made website design my full time career. I searched for the right name and felt This Demanding Life encompassed how so many of us feel about the busyness of our lives.

Which means that I get it. Really. Your time is valuable and whilst you want a great looking, well performing website, you don’t want to spend hours locked in a room with your web designer, perfecting it.

I have experience in designing all types of websites, from schools and nurseries, estate agents, small businesses and unique blog sites. Please feel free to hop over to my portfolio page to see examples of my work.

I’m based in south west London, but work with clients all over the globe, the furthest one being in Australia. Anything else you’d like to know? Send me an email, I’d love to hear from you.
