A freelance WordPress developer in the UK

I'm a WordPress specialist, developer and creative designer. I’m passionate about WordPress, and I’ve been using it to develop modern and impressive websites for clients for nearly 10 years.

Background

With an honours degree in Psychology, I left University and relocated to Manchester to seek further opportunities from my upbringing in North Wales. While living up in the north, I worked in telecommunications sales and progressed to be a sales manager for NTL Business (now VirginMedia Business) within 3 years. During that time, I spent any spare time teaching myself and learning web design, which was a hobby back then.

Following a redundacy from my sales role, I took the opportunity to change career path completely from corporate sales and joined a local company as their in-house web designer, taking a pay-cut and step backwards in career-progression.

Four years later, I was Creative Director at a digital agency, leading design and development projects for Toyota, Tyco and Milliken.

9 years on, I'm now freelancing as a WordPress specialist and have an array of clients ranging from bloggers, local businesses, corporate entities and more. I love the variation of my workload and every day is completely different.

A lot of my work also involves completing work for agencies up and down the country, such graphic designers, web and digital agencies - on a white label basis - when they need an extra hands on deck.
