about me

I am an experienced web developer working with many distinguished clients on projects across the UK and worldwide. See my portfolio.

I am a WordPress specialist but I can develop websites using any major technology. See what I do. My approach is to keep things simple, yet elegant. I believe that ‘simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’.

my background

I graduated with a first class honours degree in Medical Microbiology from the University of Newcastle in 2005 and worked as a business development specialist in strategic outsourcing engagements with IBM in London until 2008.

I have been a full time web developer since 2010 with my own company
Blue Ice Website Design.

I am proud to have worked for many distinguished clients, including Brexit Secretary Rt Hon David Davis MP, political campaign group Big Brother Watch, internationally-renowned solicitors Gibson & Co., luxury safari company Volcanoes Safaris and many more.

I strive to create beautiful, responsive websites that are accessible, secure and provide for an excellent user experience. I focus on building websites to achieve tangible results and quick return on investment for your organisation.


I develop professional websites (and apps) using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, MySql (and some others). Click any of the tabs for more info:

what I do

I have worked on hundreds of projects with dozens of clients in the last 8 years. The bulk of my work is website development using WordPress along with anciliary services like training courses, search engine optimisation, web hosting and maintenance etc.


I can be found in Stockton-on-Tees which is a small town in Teesside in the North East of England. From Stockton I serve a broad range of clients across the whole of the UK and worldwide. The majority of my clients are from London and the north east of England, including Middlesbrough, Hartlepool, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Durham, Teesside, Cleveland etc.

Stockton's heritage includes being home to the the world's first public railway to use steam locomotives, which operated between Stockton and Darlington from 1825 to 1863. You may also recall that Harold Macmillan, the former Conservative Prime Minister adoped the title of Earl of Stockton in 1984 - just 1 month before I was born. Stockton is also home to John Walker the inventor of the friction match.
