Does anyone remember dial up internet? I do! Even back in the slow loading days of the late 90s and early 00s I loved how varied websites could be. In 2004 I started working with 2 of the best IT guys I’ve known and my interest in designing websites began. I wasn’t a coder so I used to sketch on paper what the sites would look like and the guys would build them.
Then WordPress came along. Today it stands as the number 1 platform and 60% of all websites are built using WordPress. I’ll be honest – the difference between using a free blog template and building a fully customised site is a big one and my first experience of web design, building my own site, was a baptism of fire.
I have built many sites since then and as well as honing my design skills, my WordPress skills are now second to none. You can check out some of my work on my portfolio page. If you’d like to know what I’m working on currently, then visit my Facebook Page. I love sharing my work with everyone.
Life isn’t all about work though, as you’ll see from my weekly Five Things Column. I’m based in south west London, but work with clients all over the globe, the furthest one being in Canberra. Thank goodness for FaceTime and the weather app telling me the time difference between our countries.
Anything else you’d like to know? Drop me an email, I’d love to hear from you.
