Bio/Description

Freelance Web Professional (specialising in WordPress) & Web Service Provider. I specialise in WordPress website development built on the Genesis Framework.

My goal is to understand my clients’ business and, in so doing, make the process of taking their business online as easy as possible. I provide a full-service covering website development & hosting, email (if required), search engine registration and promotion, through to end-user training, ongoing website maintenance, email marketing, etc.

WordPress Origin Story

I switched to WordPress about 5 years ago after a (brief) flirtation with Joomla. I’ve developed with WordPress ever since and have no intention of switching to anything else.

I’m about to launch Migrately.com which will provide a WordPress website migration service.
