My aim is to create a transparent process, which helps facilitate an environment where questions are welcome, which leads to my clients being confident to use what I build them.
As well as being in the web development industry since 1999, I am also a qualified trainer, technical support officer, technical writer, SEO officer and structural editor.

To get technical for a moment, I’m a client-side coder, specialising in HTML, CSS and jQuery. I’m a huge fan of the latest standards (HTML5/CSS3), and well-versed in the old XHTML Strict/CSS2 – all the way back to iframe and table-based layouts.
For content-managed systems I am familiar with e107.org (php/MySQL), WordPress (php/MySQL), and Umbraco (IIS/.net/XSLT/Razor).
