What I’m about

About Me

I’m just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit northern England. Leeds to be exact.

After starting out developing websites back in 2004 I found that I had quite a flair for programming and have been striving to learn new technologies, implementing the latest techniques and pushing myself until the energy drink wears off ever since.

In 2008 I started working freelance with a small number of local businesses and worked at some of the top media agencies in Leeds. I now run SteadyGo, a creative boutique digital agency in Leeds with an amazing team of designers and developers for a number of international clients.

My real talent lies in PHP programming; with a strong focus on WordPress development both front- and backend. To complement this I have strong experience in SEO to ensure that your website has advantages in Google and jQuery to make the users experience on your site stands out.

WORKING HISTORY

My Experience

I've been fortunate enough to work at a number of digital agencies around Leeds and have learned from each and every one. Heck, I've even had the unique opportunity of running my own start up!
