I am a mid 20′s website designer, originally from Colwyn Bay, North Wales. I have been many things in my time, but the only thing that I can say I truly am is “geek”. I have a desire to help people and help them succeed with whatever they want to achieve through blogging. I have a in depth knowledge of a number of languages including HTML, CSS & PHP, and am well versed in WordPress, bbPress, Actinic, Joomla & Zen Cart. I also know a little bit about SEO & Internet Marketing.
Away from internet technology I work at times as a Professional Wrestling Lackey (either referee, or manager), I also love travelling, and have been to many places on this fair globe already. I enjoy most sports, reading & playing video games.
