As a wordpress web developer, my passion is to work closely with designers and project managers to build memorable journeys through all forms of digital media.
I have been working in the Freelance Sector for nearly ten years through B2B Networking, Online Media and, more recently, People Per Hour and some Manchester employment agencies.
My skills include WordPress and Joomla Content Management Systems, and Front and Back End Design & Functionality Development. Whilst working through agencies, I have the privilege to add brands including Deafness Support Network, Acdoco, Acdoco Direct, WRG Live, Liverpool2 and EE to my portfolio.
What I do
My core skills lie in custom WordPress builds, HTML5, CSS3, Responsive and Adaptive Web Page and Email Design, Template Integration, Template Creation, Joomla and WordPress CMS, Content Copy and Optimisation, Web Consultancy & Project Management, Web and Email Hosting.
I am a skilled developer, reliable and always willing to offer free advice and help my clients where I can. I am totally transparent and will always show time sheets and invoices where requested. In addition, unlike some freelance developers, I am available on both a land line and a mobile phone.

Who backs me up
Hems de Winter – CEO (de Winter Marketing Ltd)
Chester CH3 5TF
Call 01244 320677
During his time with de Winter, Alex has led the company’s web development and associated services including but not limited to client hosting and dev-server management, liaising directly with clients to establish briefs and working closely with de Winter’s Head of Design to plan, schedule, develop and deliver a range of projects from complex-back-end WordPress websites to a variety of XHTML cross client compatible e-news letters.
Key skills include HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, and PHP and problem-solving. Knowledgeable and technically accomplished, he has proved himself a valuable and valued member of the team and has engaged fully in all aspects of the development of the team and the business.
Sophie Everett- Account Manager (de Winter Marketing Ltd)
I can confirm that I have worked with Alex in a project management capacity and that he has tackled the build of a particularly complex template website within that time. He was able to resolve all technical issues to the client’s satisfaction and the website was well received internally by the client organisation. At the client debrief meeting post website delivery, the client acknowledged their appreciation of Alex’s efforts in ensuring that the project stayed on track during the more challenging points of development.
Stu Williams – Designer (de Winter Design Ltd)
Having worked with Alex on several web projects, his skill set, knowledge and appetite to learn has meant that our clients have always been more than happy with their website build. Alex always works under the mentality that everything is possible and will do his research to make sure the end result works perfectly. His knowledge of WordPress and other CMS is a credit to the hours of work he has put in after office hours and he’s therefore just as comfy explaining the workings of a CMS to the client as he is building.
Alex also has a passion for making sure the websites he builds are fit for purpose, and won’t be afraid to politely challenge website design or functionality, to help see if there is a better way, something that has proven to be the case in the past.
