About Me

I'm a Cape Town based freelance web developer who specialises in PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, jQuery, HTML, CSS, WordPress and custom CMS development. I also make WordPress themes.

With over 10 years experience in the industry I've had the privilege of working on a number of projects ranging in size and complexity from large enterprise systems where I functioned as part of a 10 man team to small boutique websites where I was the sole developer.

If you'd like to hire me for a project get in touch.


  • Web Development

    From website to intranet to blog no matter what your online needs might be I can provide the solution. I develop with PHP and MySQL.
  • HTML and CSS

    When it comes to HTML less is more. I write concise, semantic HTML and CSS which ensures the websites I make are SEO friendly and structured for easy updating with no code bloat.
  • jQuery

    Most commonly known for rendering Flash obsolete jQuery can add some extra bells and whistles that can really be the difference between a good site and a great site.
  • WordPress

    Currently powering 20% of the web WordPress is a widely used open source content management system. Highly customisable and greatly optimised it's an excellent springboard for development of your online presence.
  • Custom CMS Development

    If you want to manage your website content but would rather opt for something slightly more scaled down I can tailor make a bespoke solution to fit your requirements.
  • Responsive Websites

    We're living in an age where mobile devices account for 15% of global internet traffic. To not have a mobile friendly / responsive website is to cut yourself off from a daily expanding market.

    Street Fighter 2

    As a personal project I decided to remake Street Fighter 2 using the JavaScript game framework ImpactJS. It's taken 9 months to get it to a point where I would consider it a playable game even though there's only 2 playable characters. You can read more about the creation process here.
