Welcome to my site
I am a web developer working in the Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire areas of the UK. I am passionate about keeping up to date with the latest trends on the web and am continually working to expand my skill set.
A Bit About Me
I worked as an in house IT technician for nearly 7 years and have gained extensive experience using different technologies to provide IT solutions for a range of projects. From the implementation and management of in house CMS and CRM systems, to bespoke database applications designed to run large scale sales promotions for blue chip clients. Interpreting a client brief and producing a user friendly solution has allowed me to develop excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Having run my own business as a freelance IT consultant and developer for nearly 2 years, I have a high level of self-motivation and have expanded my skill set in web development, with a particular focus on front end development and developing sites built on content management systems.
