Web Design + Development

Since 2005, I've been working as a freelance web designer from the comfort of my home.

I'm currently working full-time as a UI/UX designer for WPForms.

Thoughtfully crafted designs that are as functional as they are beautiful.

Website Development
Hand-coded HTML & CSS goodness. None of the fluff, all of the awesome.

Website Maintenance
Cloud backups and monitoring tools to ensure your site is safe and secure.

WordPress Expertise
I've built well over 100 sites on WordPress since the beta was released in 2003.

One Man Army
I can cover all of the required bases and will be with you every step of the way.

The Devil's in the Details
I have a knack for finding little intricacies that make my designs stand out.

Photography

I've recently gotten into photography and have been spending most of my free time exploring my surroundings.

Well, this is kind of a momentous day. My first ever photo print arrived in the mail! It's an 8x12 canvas print which was auctioned off in support of a local non-profit. The photo itself was taken back in June during my first sunset session. It's pretty cool holding a physical print in my hands, after staring at it on a screen for so long.

Took this a few weeks ago, but didn’t post it at the time as it didn’t fit with the rest of my feed. Well, things have changed and now it fits right in.

I love wandering around after a rainfall with my macro lens and shooting fresh rain drops. My lady’s Jeep emblem looked just awesome, and reminded me of the old chrome filter in Photoshop.

Gotta love when an idea works out. Took a few tries of pouring the beans from different heights and angles before nailing it. Also, had the shutter speed too slow to begin with and the falling beans were barely visible blurs. Special thanks to my lady for indulging me.

While this photo isn't perfect, this was my first real attempt at doing some sweet product photography. I realized in post that I could have used another light on the left side to illuminate the handle, as it gets lost in the shadow. Spent some time cleaning up the colours to remove a bit of unwanted green that found its way in, removed some dings and scratches on the mug itself, and added the steam. Overall, pretty happy with it.

I love coffee. Been drinking the stuff daily for over 20 years now. Over the past few years though, I've gone from straight-up drip coffee from a coffee maker, to my daily go-to French press coffee, to Americano. I know all the cool kids make their coffee with a chemex, but it just seems like a lot of effort. And from what I've read, French press is typically hailed as the best method for producing a superb cup of coffee. It's so quick and easy, and doesn't require any filters or tedious cleaning. Go ahead, try and change my mind.

What's your go-to for making coffee?
