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 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.
