Father to two grown up children, part time carer for my wife and our three Cavachon dogs.
Originating from a graphics background (before the days of personal PC's) I have always enjoyed creating things, and helping others.
After 12 years in the graphic industry, I took a totally different path in the leisure industry (another passion of mine) but this time as the "BOSS". Those first steps running my own business were daunting and challenging but also very rewarding. In 2010 this was cut short when my wife became seriously ill. I sold the business and became a full time carer.
But the entrepreneurial blood running through my veins meant I needed to do something. So I decided to build my own website and sell some products from home. That's when I fell in love with WordPress.
As my wife improved gradually I was able to do more, attend seminars, learn about SEO, Lead generation and Blogging. I met with others in the online marketing space and picked their brains, learning all the time.
I continued to discover more about WordPress and the Blogging world, and could do all this from home too. I had found a way to use my creative brain and help others, whilst caring for my wife. It wasn't long before friends and family were asking me to help them build their websites and blogs or just create images and graphics.
I just love helping people, so was of course more than willing to do this for people. This quickly became friends of friends and Designed 4 U was born.
I look forward to learning more and meeting like minded people here on WA.
I am also around on Twitter, and post regular videos on my Youtube channel feel free to follow me on these networks too. Links in the follow me section bottom right.
