Hi! I'm Grant.

A creative web developer who specialises in WordPress and front-end development.

I am mostly based in Perth, Australia and working as a freelancer.

When you get into that rhythm while coding, it becomes zen-like. The small victories from solving problems. The feeling of achievement when finishing a project. I love it.

Over the last 7+ years, I've developed a range of websites of all shapes and sizes for clients in Australia. These include websites for federal ministers, government, businesses, products and sporting organisations.

Feel free to contact me for any enquiries or employment opportunities.
