Specialising in search engine optimisation (SEO) with a focus towards auditing websites, I've been able to gain a clear understanding of how search engines work and the best practices to help get websites ranking. This knowledge is something that I enjoy feeding into the website design and development work I do. Giving each site I design and build the best possible chances of ranking from day one.

Me as a person

I'm always honest about what I do and never try to hide the fact that web design is not my only job (sort of). I also work full time for content creator. I look after his website, digital assets and help out with other areas of his business.

I'm an avid outdoors enthusiast, spending as much time as possible doing outdoorsy stuff like camping, kayaking, rowing, hiking, and mountain biking - all things that living in North Wales are perfect for.

Other Stuff

As well as designing websites. I also have a few other websites and things going on. If you're interested, or were originally looking for one of these things, here are some helpful links:

  • Personal Website - This is my personal website. I'm planning to use it to share stuff that doesn't naturally sit anywhere else. It's likely to be a jumble of just things that I think might be helpful to someone else.
  • Clever SEO - The SEO Agency I'm working on. The idea here is to split the SEO work I do to a new business which will let me hire some help. This is a work in progress and it hasn't actually launched yet.
  • Now Hosting - This is the web hosting agency I partner with. I built their site and help out with site maintenance occasionally. It's the hosting rpovider I usually recommend.

Words From My Clients

Over the years, I've worked on so many projects, it would be impossible to showcase them all. So here's a selection of the most recent projects I've worked on.
