Umbraco development

You either already love Umbraco, like I do, or you’re yet to have the privilege of using a powerful CMS that doesn’t create restriction but is built around your needs. I build Umbraco based websites and applications for clients, and I build them very well.

Of course if the project ventures outside of Umbraco, e.g. payment systems, then I’ve got you covered here too.

How it works

If you’ve got a project brief, I can supply you with cost and schedule for delivering it. If you don’t I can work on a time and materials basis. Alternatively if you’d like help preparing a brief then please read about my consultancy service.

I ensure I have just one major project on at a time, so you get my full attention and I can feel confident that my customers are getting the best of me.

If you need a design then I’ll set you up with a tried, tested and fabulous designer or if you already have a design then I can turn that in to a fabulous, easy to manage, Umbraco based website. Finally if you’d like me to do ‘just the Umbraco bit’ then you can supply me with the site as HTML and I’ll Umbraco-ify it.

I like meeting our clients for regular face to face meetings, but most of my work is done remotely / off-site from my central Farnham office.

Approximately half of my clients are website owner looking to replace or maintain their site, while the others are web agencies who need help with an existing project.

Perhaps this section is poorly titled, because it’s mostly up to you how you'd prefer to work…

Why me?

I get the job done efficiently, with the minimum fuss, and you’ll be delighted with the result but here are a few more reasons:

A good attitude

Nothing ruins a project like a grumpy developer. I keep things positive with a ‘can do’ attitude


I’ve been developing sites since 2002, and in addition to my Umbraco certification I keep up to date with the latest features and best practise


Whether you need e-commerce, multiple languages or something else, I’ve probably had a similar request before. Whatever the project, I know the importance of keeping things as simple as possible, and understanding what is important to you

Front end

Yes, I can do front end too!

Loose (project) briefs

Sometimes can’t, or don’t want to, produce a 100% accurate brief and you need a developer with a bit of common sense to interpret the brief and make sensible decisions. I’m very happy working like this, though a comprehensive brief is equally welcome

Team player or loner

I’ve worked as part of a team and on my own, so happy to fit in as needed

A quality result

Meeting a brief is only part of the solution. I guarantee a high quality and intuitive CMS, that will be the basis for all your future needs.

My skills

I’m most comfortable working on the server side (the back-end), but I’m quite handy on the front-end too. For more details please get in touch.



Umbraco development is my core expertise and what I excel at. With new features continually released, I always keep up to date.



I’ve been building complex solutions in ASP.NET Web Forms and MVC since 2002, including gaining Microsoft certification.



I’m extremely competient and confident with JavaScript, including frameworks such as Backbone.js and AngularJS.



High quality, responsive, HTML template creation is no problem. I’m probably not suited to large HTML only projects or e-newsletters.
