Hi there! Nice to meet you. My name’s Nick. I’m a sustainable web developer based in Bristol, UK. I love to spend my time building reliable, modern, and low-carbon websites.
My journey so far
I started developing websites around 2012. This followed on from a few years of designing for print and web as a graphic designer. Over the years my focus has shifted, now very firmly focussing my efforts on digital sustainability.
I enjoy learning new tools, tech, and methods to make my development the best it can be.
What makes me, me.
I’m passionate about the little things in life. I love to listen to people’s stories, sip delicious coffee, and eat pastries.
When I’m not at the computer I can be found enjoying the outdoors, playing basketball with friends, or relaxing; enjoying an old fashioned Whisky cocktail.
Let's build something great
Interested in starting your own website project with me? Excellent! I'd love to talk to you about your idea.Get in touch
My tech stack
Some of the tools I use on a daily basis
My design tool of choice. Figma makes it easy to design from anywhere. It allows for fast iterations and modern layouts for interfaces.
My go-to text editor for writing code. Sublime Text is a solid cross-platform programme that allows me to focus on writing code with little distraction.
I code out my CSS with the Sass preprocessor. Sass is the most mature, stable, and powerful professional-grade CSS extension language in the world.
A popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development. Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
The world’s most popular open-source CMS. I’ve been working with WordPress for many years and I still prefer it to other solutions.
Prepros compiles, transpiles, and minifies files. It’s a great development tool that helps me to focus on making websites perfect, at the smallest file size possible.
Version control with Git. I’ve been using BitBucket for years. It helps me to control updates to my site builds, make branches and backups that can be rolled into staging and live environments.
UK Web Hosting that’s fair to you & the planet. 100% renewable powered eco web hosting. I use Krystal to host all my websites, and suggest them to all UK-based clients.
DeployHQ makes it super easy to deploy websites from Git/BitBucket to your own servers. A great way to speed up as as well as secure website deployment and updates.
In their own words. Slack is where work happens. I use it for all kinds of communications, both for business and personal interests.
Notion is one of those tools that makes work easier. Note-taking, scheduling, Task lists – Notion handles all of it seamlessly.
