Hi I’m Andy
I work with purpose driven organisations to help them build brilliant websites that respect their users and the planet.
Why work with me?
I listen and collaborate
In my working life I’ve worn many hats, from a bowler hat at a big four accountancy firm to a beanie when I ran an alpine hospitality business. This range of experience gives me insight into the needs of organisations I’m working with. I collaborate with my clients to tell their story in an engaging, effective way.
Whether you need a site created from scratch or existing page designs brought to life with low weight coding, I am here to help.
I make lighter, more efficient websites
Lighter weight websites are quicker, less resource intensive and use less electricity to run. Users like them, search engines like them and the planet prefers them.
Website users want to quickly find information & solutions relevant to them. Efficient websites attract the right users & help them quickly convert. Your ideal site is tailored to appeal to your ideal audience & then make it easy for them to convert from potential clients to actual clients.
I build low carbon websites
Hosting and viewing any website has a carbon footprint attached. Devices use electricty while you browse, data centers use electricity and water even if no one is browsing the sites hosted on them.
Anyone who has owns a website can make positive changes to reduce their digital carbon footprint. I build websites using sustainable web design principles to make lighter weight, more efficient sites.

Ikigai is a Japanese concept for something that gives a person a sense of purpose, a reason for living. Here’s mine:
I live in the French Alps with my wife Heather, son and perma-muddy dog Rufus. I’m passionate about spending time in nature and eating good food with people that matter.
As a family we live a considered life that helps us reduce our household carbon footprint well below the average in the Global North. I strive to make my work a part of that which is why I try and make each site I build emit less carbon and tell it’s story a little more effectively.
Dr Ayana Elizabeth Johnson condenses all this much more succinctly than I can with her Climate Action Venn Diagram.
Sitegiest fits into mine quite nicely…
“Spanking new, sustainably-designed website with an average carbon reduction of a whopping 81% per website page vs my previous website. Now that is something to celebrate.
