I design and / or build websites, providing a service that is best suited to organisations, agencies and individuals.
This starts with the initial requirements specification and information structuring phases of a project.
I often motivate, initiate, and manage the task management systems during a build phase, while the work is performed at a pixel-perfect standard.
A more comprehensive overview of the sort of procedural methodology I employ can be found here.
Here is a list of all the finishing touches you get in your package.
I have an obsession with information and a skill for finding, organising, and presenting it in ways that visitors to your website can understand, navigate, and find aesthetically pleasing.
With 16 years of experience, visitors to your website built using my good hands will instantly know they've landed in your good hands.

Using your or my design, I build light-but-sturdy, fast, and easy-to-use websites.
I build most of my websites using the self-hosted version of WordPress (wordpress.org) using a single fast, sturdy, “blank canvas” framework theme. This ensures customisability and longevity of websites, amongst many other benefits.
I make use of the excellent Beaver Builder range of tools. I carefully build their legendary page builder into the design of the website. This allows clients and content managers to quickly lay out pages and edit content on the front end of the website.
Depending on requirements, I code functions and templates, make use of quality WordPress plugins, and sometimes create my own, or modify existing plugins.

So what's with all the aeroplanes?
It's about flight, of course, but also about a specific plane.
The Bugatti 100 / 110p
The Bugatti 100 / 110p was a unique*, beautifully-designed, extremely fast and highly-advanced aircraft. Read more about it here.
* In fact it was so unique that - although designed in the 1930s - it was only recently built.
The positive qualities of this aircraft resonate with my philosophy of building websites.
So there you have it. I hope you liked the metaphor : )
