Portfolio

Some of the website I have worked on are listed below; just shown in alphabetical order. I was responsible for the technical aspects of these sites such as database design and management, programming and hosting. The visual appearance was either created by different graphic designers I have worked with or was based on WordPresss templates.

In addition I have also created several private ‘back office’ systems to allow companies to manage their business procedures.
