Hire David

If you need help with your own web project, I am available for front and back-end development work, branding, design, WordPress development (themes and plugins) or general consulting work starting at £250 a day with a 1 day minimum.

Outside of general web work, I specialise in building extensions (and integrations) for Easy Digital Downloads, so if you have a specific use-case or business practice that you would like automated, I may be able to help make it reality. I am a certified Easy Digital Downloads consultant and core contributor.

As with all client work, I am happy to agree to either a fair flat-rate fee or a favourable on-going recurring rate depending on your project budget and scope. I pride myself on clear, open communication (I can speak technical if preferred, or translate complicated details for non-technical clients and business owners), and I guarantee a fluid, transparent, detailed, and smooth client on-boarding experience. In terms of deliverables, I endeavour to deliver bloat-free seamlessly integrated, and securely-coded solutions that satisfy all client expectations.

Here is a testimonial from a recent web development project:

“Simply put, David is a cut above. He understands the importance of analyzing and asking the right questions to get at the heart of an issue and pairs this with a superb ability to consult on best practices and execute. I honestly look forward to the next time I need to tap David’s expertise, he is truly a pleasure to do business with” — David Sanders

“David was extremely pleasant to work with on our most recent project together. His deep knowledge of Easy Digital Downloads allows him to work quickly while thinking ahead to avoid potential issues and to develop efficiently and effectively. Without a doubt, we’ll be turning to David again for any custom EDD development that we may need in the future.” – Casey Fulgenzi

“David is a pleasure to work with. His clean code and fast turnaround time has been instrumental in getting our site to where it is today.” – Morten Jaeger
