Chief Developer at Simple Website In A Day

I started creating websites for myself as a Photographer in 2010 and then branched out into helping friends and colleagues put the finishing touches on their own sites.I loved the creativity and the freedom that came with designing and coding websites, and this fueled my passion to learn all the code and markup languages that go with designing sites. A passion that still stands today as I continue my learning and growth as a web developer.At Simple Website In A Day or belief that sites don't have to be complicated for users to keep their content fresh and up to date, nor do we believe that building sites should be time consuming nor costly.That is why we use the tools that are powerful, quick and deliver nothing but excellence.
