STATUS  : FOR HIRE

ENTREPRENEUR , DEVELOPER, WRITER.

FIFTEEN YEARS . AS A DEVELOPER

Specializing in stylish design, and content management, I have been working in the web development industry for over fifteen years. Over 400 web sites designed, hundreds of thousands of web sites hosted under my former company (EIRCA Ltd), and over 500 unique logos designed and sold. I work  with PHP, Java, various CMS platforms and usually opt for CSS based responsive websites.

CMS Based websites

Content Management Systems are the easiest way to maintain control over your websites content. I work with all major platforms, and offer custom design for each. Ideal for Real Estate companies, Insurance brokers, magazine/newspaper websites. Contact me for pricing.

CONTENT IS KING

Many web designers are amazingly talented, but lack the skills required to put content within the design, and create a free-flowing website. This is where I come in. If you designed the site yourself and now need a copy editor, simply contact me below and we’ll get started.

CORPORATE MEDIA PACKAGES

The internet changes at an alarming rate, and with it the demands placed upon companies to provide a satisfying online experience for their clients. A complete corporate package gives you my services for two months, during which I will revamp your entire online presence.
