Hello my name is Simon Davies and I’m a full-stack web developer based in Twickenham, London.

I have over 10 years experience as a web developer and I have a passion for creating beautiful and high performance products for the web. I work across both front-end and back-end and usually prefer to work on either Craft CMS, Shopify or Laravel projects, but I’m always learning new frameworks and techniques.

I have experience working with clients across multiple sectors and sizes ranging from small startups to multinational corporations. If you want to have a chat to find out more about me, or discuss your next web project then please get in touch.
