What I'm Doing

I love what I do. I take great pride in what I do. And I can't do something halfway, three-quarters, nine-tenths. If I'm going to do something, I go all the way.

1. Web Development

Building complex, responsive websites, is my core business. Powered by open source Content Management Systems such as WordPress.

2. Digital Strategy

Specialists in designing interfaces for websites, intranets, portals and online platforms. They integrate neatly and seamlessly to your backend, whatever the platform.

3. WooCommerce Integration

Customisation of WordPress theme to integrate it fully with WooCommerce as needed including products (e.g. T-Shirts), attributes (e.g. Medium/Large), variations (e.g. Red/Blue), plus shipping classes, shipping methods, and payment gateways.

4. Mobile Ready

40% of all internet searches are done from a mobile device. What does this mean in terms of developing a new website?

5. Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization is as important as building your site correctly. It's the steps and levels of thought, copywriting and strategy.

6. Consulting

I will liaise directly with your existing web developers, or IT department, or can also educate and train you or your staff on how to get the most out of your website.

My Strengths

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.

Work Process

As a human being, I'm work in process.

Similar to the traditional software development process, the website development life-cycle too can be divided into different steps. Such bifurcation helps align different activities towards a progressive goal that ultimately culminates into successful project completion. Knowing more about these steps will also help team to understand their respective roles in the context of a given task and extract maximum quality.

1. Idea
2. Sketch
3. Design
4. Develop
5. Test
6. Launch

Some steps may not applicable for certain tasks. It depends largely on the cost and time involved and the necessity.

Contact Me

Have a project you'd like to discuss?

I’m very comfortable working freelance for clients from all across the globe. I enjoy helping good causes or sites/webmasters similar to mine, and I enjoy making new friends and networking.

Once my services are retained we will communicate any way that works best for you.. Billing is pretty flexible for all services.

Rate is $60/hour

Work Policy

I will never waste my time and your money by doing just enough to get paid or meet simple requirements. I deal only in results. I like to understand the root of the problem and discern what the task ultimately is meant to accomplish, and cut straight towards that. I dislike temporary fixes that will need to be re-addressed, preferring a “once-and-for-all” type of solution.

Refunds

If I can’t meet or exceed your expectations initially agreed upon then I will instantly refund 100% of any payments made other then the retainer. I’ve never had anyone request a refund.
