About

Originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, but now based in Dublin. I have worked as a freelancer since 2011, mostly concentrating on developing websites for charities, artists, small businesses and start-ups. 
I previously worked with the housing and homeless charity Focus Ireland, where I worked as a street outreach worker, youth worker and researcher. I also worked as a Campaigns Resource Officer for what is now called Mental Health Reform before going freelance.

CUSTOMISE YOUR WEBSITE AND ADD FUNCTIONALITY

Services

I mostly work in developing and supporting websites. My preferred content management system is WordPress. I prefer clean, simple sites that have a clear message. I also work with organisations and people structuring their content in order to provide the best possible experience for users. Whether it’s design, development, or strategy related, I’ll work with you help you find the best possible solution.

WORKING WITH CHARITIES IN IRELAND TO GET THE BEST OUT OF THEIR WEBSITES

Past Work

Most of my work is with charities, but I have also worked with small businesses, artists and start-ups. Work has been pretty varied and includes web design, web development, content creation, Adsense optimisation, PPC, research, hosting, virus removal and website support services. Most clients find me via word-of-mouth. I also run a couple of side-projects; these include an aggregator of daily deals and a Dublin based business directory.
