a bit about me

Hi, I’m Ian Cross, a passionate website developer and front end-designer from Bournemouth, with a BSc Internet Systems degree.


I work primarily with Wordpress and am able to create custom plugins and themes to meet the varying requirements of my clients.


My degree has provided a strong foundation in object orientated php and the ability to confidently engage with the problem solving process.


Being relatively new to the industry, I have worked freelance for a number of clients with the intention of gaining experience and developing my skill set to enter into employment within an organisation. I am passionate about persuing a career within the field and confident in my abilities to deliver fully functional, intuitive and aesthetically pleasing websites.


Currently, I am working as a freelancer.
