Web Designer, Developer and WordPress Crackerjack
I’m originally from a remote crofting community in the Highlands of Scotland with possibly the slowest internet connection in the British Isles. I cut my teeth building small websites for local businesses and after moving to Edinburgh in the late ’90s, the internet became more popular and as the demand for websites grew, so did my skills.
Having worked on an extensive range of projects including large ecommerce websites, subscription based services and everything in between, these days I’m a full-time web developer and WordPress specialist. I currently work as a Senior Web Developer in Ottawa, Ontario.
Just like its namesake, Whitetail Gin is superior in strength and power, subtle and smooth – As gentle on the palate as a feather drifting down from the sky.
Skills & Expertise
How can we work together?
With solid design skills and a creative eye, I have a long track record of collaborating with talented designers. Together, we produce well oiled, user-friendly, responsive websites.
I have tremendous experience developing original themes, writing client-specific plugins, deploying multisite installations and bending WordPress to my will.
I have experience with Google, Facebook and Twitter APIs, along with some more project-specific APIs used for connecting to PoS terminals and loyalty services.
Many websites require the ability to sell goods or services. I’ve led projects based on Magento, OpenCart and of course, WooCommerce with sales topping $35,000 per day.
As an experienced professional, I know my strengths and when to lean on the skills of others. This ensures delivery of a high-quality product that exceeds client expectations.
