Portfolio

My portfolio of websites is listed below by the year in which they were created or most recently redesigned.

I am responsible for all technical aspects of these sites including database design and management, programming and hosting. The visual appearance of these was either created by different graphic designers with whom I am associated or was based on a WordPress template.

In addition to the sites listed below I have also created private ‘back office’ systems for several organisations allowing them to manage their business procedures.

Finally, until 2011 I was the lead developer on the website of South Lakeland District Council and continue to support some of their online systems.
