Skills: Standards based website development using ColdFusion, CSS, POSH, MySQL and superhuman powers
I have a passion for creating beautiful, elegant, standards based websites. It's all I think about. Really.
I've been creating websites since 1996, and specialising in e-commerce since 2000.
Since going freelance in 2005, I've been working mostly with SME's - creating bespoke applications that help to manage their day-to-day activities, (accounting, customer management, invoicing etc.) as well as feature rich e-commerce systems and content management systems, each specifically tailored to the individual requirements of my clients.
When I'm not making websites I run a clothing company, RetroGT.com.

At the time of writing my most recent projects include:
Content management system to maintain an online portfolio of training courses.
Includes automatic PDF generation and subscription management.
Content management for a wealth of product information and technical downloads.
Includes advanced search functionality which cross references product features.
E-Commerce system geared towards jewellery retail.
Includes advanced search functionality, cross selling, invoicing and accounts management.
E-Commerce system for wholesale B2B.
Includes customer approval process, enquiry products, invoicing and accounts management.
All of my sites include comprehensive admin systems, giving clients full control over content.
They are designed to be accessible search engine friendly.
