Hello, I'm a WordPress Developer

I make plugins, themes, and bespoke functionality…

About Me

I am Co-Founder & Web Director at Platførm, where I specialise in WordPress development. I'm passionate about WordPress, and using it to develop modern and impressive websites.

I have been working in the web industry for over 6 years. Starting as a graphic designer, I soon moved my way into development, and to this day I still love doing both.

I now specialise in complex and bespoke WordPress websites, often involving integrations with Magento and other external systems.

My Career

My first design related job was with Catalyst Computer Systems in Mountsorrel. Here I was in charge of designing the company's literature and advertisements.

I learnt about typography and print design, as well as expanding my knowledge of web development.

In 2009 I moved jobs to work with a web design agency called Creare. I started as a junior web designer, but soon moved my way up to become a senior team member, and then a team leader.

It was here that I fell in love with WordPress, and was often put in charge of large and bespoke WordPress projects.

In 2011 I became the Senior Web Developer at a smaller company called Me & Him. I was in charge of everything web related, and helped develop some very interesting sites for large clients.

During my time at these companies, I was also working on a freelance basis. I had success as a freelancer and decided that this was my next step. In 2012 I took the leap and became a full time freelancer.

Towards the end of 2012, I joined forces with Jay Pick, and our company Platførm was born.
