Bio/Description

I am a web designer and consultant with over 15 years of experience in this area. Based on the beautiful South Wales coast, in the UK, I live and breath all things design and sport (particularly football – the British version).

WordPress Origin Story

My journey with WordPress started in 2009 as I was looking for an alternative to Drupal as a CMS. I was finding Drupal extremely difficult to design and develop with as I was sinking so much time trying to learn and wrestle with its convoluted API. I realised there must be a better solution out there which is where I hit upon WordPress.

I was aware of the popularity of WordPress and decided to take the plunge. I haven’t looked back since and find WordPress a great tool for web design and development. It’s very easy to design and develop with and doesn’t take over too much on the frontend.

To this day I find that the main benefits of WordPress are that clients generally find it easy to use, it has a strong vision that I agree with and on the whole it is developing at a rapid pace.
