Development

If you can dream it, I can develop it. Whether it be a simple WordPress blog or a complex one-of-a-kind design, I have the skill and experience to do the job. Period.

Recovery

Not happy with your current website developer? Let me step in and clean the mess. Sometimes you need to call in the experts to deal with the cowboys.

Performance

Nobody enjoys visiting a slow website. Google doesn't like it either. Page loading times actually affect rankings. Improve your user engagement and revenue by speeding up your website.

Security

Website hacking is at an all time high. Whether you have a WordPress blog or a e-commerce website, I can help protect your asset from malicious users.

SEO

The search engine landscape has changed radically over recent years. Old school techniques no longer apply. SEO takes time and persistence. I can help guide you towards search engine prosperity.

Charity

I'm passionate about people and organisations that focus on serving the community. I particularly enjoy working with Christian churches, NGOs, NPOs, and PBOs. I even offer discounted rates!
