I am a half English, half South African web designer, turned online entrepreneur, a husband and most recently a father. I am currently living and working in the beautiful city of Cape Town.
Born in London and returning regularly, I completed my tertiary education in Cape Town, graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Cape Town, and a design diploma at a local design agency.
I’m the proud co-founder of WooThemes working most days from our headquarters heading up the product design & development and working closely with fellow co-founder Adii Pienaar on business strategy, marketing, and day-to-day administration. Find out more about my work.
For 3 years prior I was freelancing from the UK doing brand and web design work for international clients, but soon realised it was more fun, less hassle and through hard work more profitable working on growing my own business ventures. So now I can take holidays, take sick days, and get paid.
In my previous life I was a mobile disc jockey helping pay for my rent & beer during university days, a part owner of an I.T company called Gravit8, and the designer behind South African social media aggregator Afrigator (which we later sold to MIH Print Africa).
- This site is powered by the wonderful WordPress, with a variety of plugins, for its content management.
- The site design is based on our commercially available WordPress Merchant theme that we sell at WooThemes. It’s a hugely powerful theme with loads of widgets and theme options to really customize and make your own.
- Further customizations and specific styling were added by creating a child theme. Find out more on WordPress child theming.
- My awesome logo was designed by the talented, Cape Town based illustrator and cartoonist, Alex Latimer.
