Welcome to our monthly staff posts where we deep dive into the minds of our team and get to know a little bit more about them.


How long have you been working with Shopify?

We started offering Shopify services around 5 years ago as the demand became increasing, with many clients switching from Magento to Shopify we decided to switch things up and get stuck into Liquid code and then become a Shopify Partner.


How did you get into website design & Development?

A family friend who at the time, was a top-level coder in Java advised me to take a course on building a website as he could see it becoming a high demand for businesses around the world.

I decided to go to Manchester Uni and the rest is history. Over the years I have developed my skill set to evolve with the ever-changing digital world.


What do you like to do in your spare time / unwind?

Hiking, I have the option of the Lake District or Snowdon, so when I am not running my daughter up and down the country for dance, I like to get away from it all, and there’s not best place than up a mountain.


Where do you see the business in the next 5 years?

Taking on a few more clients and hopefully another Designer/Developer to help with the load – we would consider going back into an office but working remotely works and I would rather invest the office rent into the staff/business.


Most existing projects to work on?

Over the past 20 years I have worked on some amazing projects, I love Greenfield where I can take a client’s idea/vision and bring it to life. However, with my love of Football working with Nike & Adidas on boot launches was a stand-out project.
