Hi, I am Darren and I am a full-time freelance WordPress developer.
I very much enjoy the interconnected life we have online, travel, and walking the cliffs and beaches of my local area.
I have been developing websites for 20 years, from the days when website were table layouts, to the new modern mobile responsive website layouts.
I have worked with different CMS’s including Joomla, ExpressionEngine and since 2012 I have been fully committed to WordPress development.
I hold two Master Degrees in Multimedia and Information Design, and separately in Fine Art (which started me in web development!). I am a self-taught developer always looking to expand my skillsets online and I am currently learning ReactJS.
