About

I am an experienced website developer creating secure, accessible, responsive, fast-loading websites for over 10 years.

Education

I graduated from the University of Newcastle with a First Class Honours Degree in Medical Microbiology.

Employment

After university, I joined IBM on their graduate training scheme as a business development specialist in strategic outsourcing engagements.

I left IBM after a couple of years to pursue other interests and to establish my own company, Blue Ice Web Design. I am proud to have worked on hundreds of projects with dozens of satisfied clients.

I love the simple things in life, believing that ‘simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’. I enjoy travelling, music, coffee, cooking and spending long summer days out cycling on my old bike. And I follow Middlesbrough Football Club, watching them get beat on a regular basis.
