Your go-to guy for web design.

I create small to medium sized websites using WordPress. I will work closely with you to create a look and feel that matches your vision. I am an experienced web designer who uses strategy and objective thinking to ensure that your project goals are not only met, but exceeded.

You can find a selection of the websites I’ve created in my Portfolio.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is the world's leading Content Management System. WordPress is used on on 30% of all website worldwide, 10 times more than it’s nearest competitor, Joomla. A large number of the world's top companies use WordPress for their sites. You can view a curated list of these companies here.

WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done quickly. Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is greatly reduced. WordPress is a self-contained system and does not require HTML editing software


The code behind WordPress is very clean and simple, making it easy for search engines to read and index a site’s content. In addition, each page, post, and image can have its own meta tag keywords, description, and title, and be optimized for specific keywords, allowing for very precise search engine optimization. You can also use tags to further enhance your search engine optimization efforts.


WordPress acts as the engine for your website. The look and feel of the site can be 100% customized so your brand can shine through on your site and provide a unique experience to your visitors. I custom build every WordPress site using a fully featured theme. Each website I create has a unique look and feel, and I will consult with you to ensure your vision is met in the final website.

Responsive Design

All of my websites feature responsive web design. Responsive web design is an approach to web design that makes web pages render well on a variety of devices and window or screen sizes. This is becoming increasingly important as mobile web traffic has overcome desktop traffic in the last few years.

You can view an example of a website I created adapting to different screen sizes in the video below.

I would highly recommend working with Garvan. He took a drawing I had and changed it to the official logo for Evolution Yoga. He has been the main source of advertising for the yoga classes with a number of beautiful and professional looking posters which always get so many compliments. I know Garvan to be extremely reliable and friendly to work with, always keeping me informed and willing to make any adjustments I saw fit. I would highly recommend anyone to 'go-to Garvan'read more
