As a student at Lancaster University and a designer at WPlook Studio, it’s safe to say I love the web. Having worked with it extensively over the past few years, I have real hands-on experience with PHP, jQuery, CSS, and WordPress.

When I’m not in front of a screen, I’m an avid follower of fashion, love to cook, adore everything about trains, and write some of the worst tweets known to man. I’m also a novice jogger - but that might change after a few kilometres. Humour me.

Featured project

Restaurants Brighton

Restaurants Brighton is a listing style site, featuring restaurant listings, reviews, recommendations and anything hot & fresh from Brighton’s vibrant food scene.

Together with MinkiDesign, we have set up and styled the site to match Restaurants Brighton’s brand, as well as developed features to make it easier for them to manage their content.

Latest Project


U.nu is a URL shortener based on YOURLS. The design of the site is based on my own YOURLS theme, ∞², customised to fit the needs of my client.

I have designed a number of ideas for the site based on close collaboration with the client, and later coded the site with usability and performance in mind.

I also designed a version of the site using the Polr URL shortener instead.


Current Work

WPlook Studio

For the first two years of my professional career, I worked for WPlook Studio, a developer of WordPress themes and plugins.

My work included developing themes and plugins, working with external plugins like WooCommerce, and designing new products, like the recent WPlook Shortcodes plugin.
