Cast your mind back a few years and you may remember a time when nobody was quite sure where this internet thingy was going. But even back then I decided it was definitely going somewhere. And so I got myself qualified as a web designer - if only to improve my understanding of how best to write this website copy I was increasingly being asked for.

But it also means – and I have a CIW qualification to prove it – I can offer clients (mainly small commercial and voluntary organisations) a more streamlined, cost-effective and innovative integration of content and design.

So if you’re looking for a bespoke approach (this is a template-free zone) click on either of the screenshots to have a look at other sites I've both designed and written the copy for ... but don't forget to come back to this one.

Iím also an experienced and flexible voiceover artist - from vicars to villains - having recorded several audio books for Joyful Productions, including A Load of Old Bones by Suzette A Hill (which also features the voice of the inimitable Leslie Phillips). And Spritz, written by Neil J Hart.

Click on the ‘Play’ buttons to have a listen and if you think my voice is right – say for a radio commercial or a training video – why not take advantage of it. If you want me to write the script as well, you could also take advantage of the cost savings you'd achieve as part of a package price.

It could be a jingle to add sparkle to a radio commercial. Or background music to give some atmosphere to
a website or any other form of multimedia presentation.

I have a long record of writing and recording music and you can have
a listen here to a couple of versions of a jingle I wrote for Employment Plus. And you may be surprised,
but an original composition, for whatever purpose, needn't be that expensive.

I’ve also been collaborating recently with the singer Jacqueline Petrea under the name of Extraordinary Behaviour and you can have a listen to some tracks from our first album What’s This All About Then? by clicking on the cover shot.
