Projects

Piffany Copenhagen

Piffany Copenhagen is a Danish design company that brings unique designs to life through ethical craftmanship. I developed their website working closely with the design team to exhibit the many collections, designers and products that fall under the Piffany Copenhagen brand.

Nguni Handbags

These unique cowhide pieces are designed and manufactured in Cape Town. I worked closely with the design team to develop the Nguni website with the aim of telling their fascinating story featuring their products and process.

BushScapes

BushScapes is a specialist tour operator with an African footprint. I built their complete web presence, showcasing all of the available destinations and accommodation that can be booked.

I also built their sister company’s travel sites: barefootbreaks.co.za and just-mauritius.co.za/.

About

I am an experienced web developer.

You can usually find me between Cape Town and Europe, working remotely with international clients.

Get in touch if you want to collaborate or start a new project, I am always interested.

I love making clients’ ideas a reality. Having started out in the world of finance, I was drawn to the never-ending learning curve of coding and I became a self-taught programmer. Apart from coding I also enjoy participating in the design process. My coding and design philosophy is minimalist: I believe in taking the complex and making it simple.

I specialise in WordPress, preferring to build custom solutions to fit my clients’ needs. High-quality code is a priority for me. For this reason I use the latest technologies for lightning-fast websites.

I am passionate about helping creative entrepreneurs build their brands and digital presence. I am open to business partnerships with clients where I fulfil the tech and development roles in a venture. When I’m not developing I enjoy exploring the great outdoors. I can be found on a motorbike, bicycle, in the ocean or hiking through some mountainous terrain.
