Website design and development

I’m a WordPress developer and have been working with WordPress since 2006. I like to build fast, performant, easy to use websites with a low carbon footprint. I like to build custom themes from the ground up using git, node/npm, sass, JavaScript, jQuery. I can write plugins and create Gutenberg blocks. And there’s always something new to learn.

I really appreciate all of the patience you’ve had, and all the work you’ve put in to get the site to where it is.  Everyone at AEF is really pleased with it.

Iā€™m feeling so much more confident about all this thanks to your expert help & also having you gently steer me in the right direction to just generally have a go! Actually starting to be quite excited about this new piece of work taking off instead of feeling overwhelmed.

Environmental Paper Network Biomass Facility Map
I worked with the Environmental Paper Network and the Global Forest Coalition to produce a bespoke map pinpointing biomass facilities around the world. The map was produced using Open Street Maps, LeafletJS, and custom javascript, and converted to a plugin allowing it to be embedded in the EPN website.
