I am a freelance web developer / programmer based in Brighton. My main services are:


I'm booked up with existing client projects until the Summer. If you need web development or Adwords management in mid 2019, please get in touch. If you need help before then, I suggest:

For development work, try the freelancers at my networking group, the Farm where there are many excellent programmers in a wide variety of languages.

If you need website promotion, please get in touch via Web Positioning Centre, where my business partner David will reply to your message & I can get involved where needed.

Currently Working On (February 2020):

  • Ongoing updates for an international recruitment agency, also with several other freelancers (PHP/Laravel 5)
  • Ongoing updates and SEO help for a local access firm (ColdFusion)
  • Ongoing Adwords & Bing Ads management for three local companies
  • Various small updates for existing clients

Soon I'll be able to make public the first tool in my new project, Brisk, helping people save time and money in their Adwords advertising.

Latest Client Work:

New website for a client who is branching out. My existing client Skillsearch are moving in to a new area and required their existing website duplicating and some amendments made to subtly rebrand it as Skillsearch Dental. This was done with help from Nick Carter (design) and Laura Tyler (some PHP work). (2018)

Quick site for new venture Dispersion Technology, designed by Tom Crew. (2018)

Ongoing work for Facelift Access, helping with new features in their website, maintenance of content, HTML newsletter building and sending, and Adwords management. (2018)

New site for IT recruitment company Skillsearch, a collaboration between myself, Nick Carter on design, Laura Tyler on PHP/Laravel with myself, and Hambly Freeman doing front end build. (2017)

New site for legal recruitment company G2 Legal, a collaboration between myself, designer Nick Carter, PHP developer Laura Tyler and Elliot Taylor handling front end build. (2017)

Managing the AdWords account for a local company in the medical industry. So far I have significantly reduced conversion costs and increased conversions for their primary campaigns. (2014)

Took over Article Epsilon from the client I built it for who has moved on to other projects. Potentially looking to turn it in to a blogging platform over the long term, but it may become something else. (2014, personal project.)

Site updates for book publishers Allison & Busby, including adding the ability to file books in to series, updates to how sorting in drill-down searches works, and lots of behind the scenes updates. Site tech: PHP & MySQL. (2013)

New website for Nicklin Builders in Worthing, using Perch as a Content Management System (CMS). Designs were by Megan Sayers.

New website for Financial Services recruitment company Arc Consulting, implementing designs from Nick Carter. The site uses PHP and MySQL to allow ARC's staff to post jobs, and a layer of extra interactivity using jQuery to make the site slicker to use. (2012)
