About Me

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.
