Web Designer

A web designer with years of experience of Wordpress.  I've created many websites for clients and always provided instructions and training to make sure they get the best out of their website.

Deciding to put my years of experience into a teaching environment, I want to help you get a website for your business and so you how to design pages, which is an essential element of website design and not something that is built into WordPress by default.
