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.
How I can help you
I have experience with working remotely for local, national and international clients including private businesses (SMEs and large organisations) and for web / graphic design agencies (sometimes I am the man behind the scenes crafting agency websites).
I can help you with:
– Custom WordPress Theme Development
– Mobile-First Responsive Design
– Website Speed Security and Optimization
– PSD / PDF / Sketch to Wordpress
– Website Hosting Migration
– Regular website maintenance
– Hosting setups, DNS updates
– Security, Hacking Cleanup,

Chinese Website Development
Alongside my lovely wife (Chinese), we have extensive experience in providing Chinese website development (using WordPress) and digital marketing (Baidu – the largest search engine in China Baidu, WeChat and Weibo – the top 2 Chinese social media platforms, Chinese online PR and advertising).
I can provide help with:
– Create a digital hub for effective Chinese marketing campaigns
– Maximise audience accessibility with Chinese website hosting
– Provide a distinct identifier for China with a Chinese domain name
– Tailor UX to the unique needs of your Chinese customers
If I cannot find clients a solution then I always provide options to help clients always move forward.
Thanks for viewing my profile.
A pleasure to work with.

Darren was patient with a very senior citizen's difficulties with Zoom, made some simple recommendations for upgrading my site, and walked me through a few important modifications (things that were blocking me from further development). I shall definitely seek him out if future issues arise
