About Freelance WordPress Developer


After completing a degree in English literature I studied for an MSc in Information Systems and that set me on my path to working in technical roles. My oldest memories as a fledgling "webmaster" are of creating static websites with Dreamweaver and backing up web servers onto tape . Fast-forward several years and websites are built with powerful content management systems like WordPress that help the internet thrive. It's great to work with clients in this ever-evolving technical environment and I welcome the variations and challenges that each project brings.
