Welcome to my studio!
My name is John
What I Can Do

Web Development

I'm a freelancer but also run a team and take on project work as well

WordPress Development

WordPress has been my 'bread and butter' for several years, I picked up my first freelance clients back in 2008 and have been a limited company contractor since 2012. I picked up the basics of PHP, MySQL, Linux and front-end technologies like HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Front End Web Development

Working with WordPress gave me a lot of exposure to building plugins and custom themes. This helped me to learn technologies like HTML5, SASS and jQuery. More recently, I've turned my hand to Angular.

Project Architecture & Setup

Being exposed to such a wide variety of projects and technologies helped me to learn the best ways of setting up and running a project. These days, I always try to automate what I can with Grunt or Gulp, setup continuous integration and always use Git for version control.

About

How It All Began...

  • 2008-2009

    My Humble Beginning

    Whilst studying for my engineering degree, I discovered something called 'WordPress' and started playing with it at home and managed to pick up some low-paid work for the University of Sheffield rebuilding a WordPress site.

  • October 2009

    Remote working with international clients

    Upon graduating, having acquired a couple of clients, I moved overseas to Thailand for 2 years and honed my skills as a WordPress developer. I ramped up the value and complexity of the projects I was involved with and learned a huge amount.

    Limited Company Contracting

    I realise that my remote work won't pay the bills, setup a limited company and start contracting for the likes of The University of Salford, The British Council and Amaze PLC.

  • June 2014

    Building A Team

    I throw myself whole-heartedly into being the best web developer I can, learning everything I can at every opportunity and start hiring my team to grow my business and the value I can deliver.
