Creating clean, friendly and usable websites

Starting with a personal website in 2000, I have been fascinated by the web as a medium of communication ever since.

I have learned and keep learning about how best to use it. After voluntary projects and an internship at the University of Bristol, I have started to do websites on a professional basis. Whatever the project, I love finding ways to make websites work.

What I can do for you

Are you thinking about getting a website? I can advise you, and provide the following technical aspects:

  • Write code for your website (HTML/CSS/Javascript)
  • Integrate the site with a content management system (CMS). With a CMS you can update your website without knowledge of HTML.
  • Basic design (layout and text structure, colour scheme). Otherwise I can use a design provided by you, or I can get somebody to do it for you.
  • Host your website and register a domain name.

I follow the latest standards in web design/development and will make sure your site and its administration is clear and easy to use.

Further activities and plans

I am interested in teaching coding, and run a Code Club at our local school. I am also, together with a friend, in the process of setting up a monthly "Hack Day" for freelance web developers.

I have recently been learning Python, as I think it is a good language to learn about new programming concepts, and to teach as a first programming language.
