Freelance development



Custom design to Wordpress featuring custom post types, custom built ajax based forms with validation.

My Client Manager

As a freelance developer i needed a way to track clients, jobs, tasks, notes and meetings. So i built a client management portal using my favorite PHP framework.

The Profile Manager

Earlier on in my development career before the introduction of using current CMS systems as actual development frameworks i needed a system that i could use as a platform to develop any custom projects on. Something that already had a user management system, something that allowed me to create, assign, edit and delete content. Something that i could take as a base system and use to build anything on to it. So using Codeigniter i built what i call the profile manager, a base cms/user management system that i could mend into any piece of online software that i needed. Unfortunately i never really launched it onlne or used it much.

Woocommerce Product quotation plugin

I built a custom plugin that hooks into the woocommerce ecommerce plugin, it replaces the "Buy Now" button with a "Get a Quote" button. It then adds all items to an email that gets sent to the site owner so the site owner can send the user a quotation on all products. This plugin is not complete but is functional. When i get more time i wish to complete it with a management area and post it for free download on wordpress.org

Burger Perfect

Custom design into Wordpress as a CMS. Custom built Combo's, Ribs, Burgers and toasties showcase area. Due to the lack of product based plugins at the time i custom built the full menu as well.

Peachpip Collective - Custom Parralax

Based on a custom design by Douglas Da Silva, i had strict demands from the designer to build a paralax version of the design. All the code is hand coded based on a 960 grid system and HTML5 with custom javascript paralax code.
The site was never completed and never went live.

Douglas Da Silva - Portfolio

A CSS3 screen size responsive html based portfolio built from a custom design featuring Jquery fade functions, a background image preloader and embedded fonts. Site was never launched as designer changed his mind on the actual design.

Hit The Beach

Built from a custom design into wordpress and using the ecommerce platform Woocommerce. The client based in Australia required a platform on which they could sell their beach products, they needed a system that would handle the shipping needs of the purchaser and at the same time manage product stock.
The site is using Paypal as the payment gateway, this way the purchaser could use their Paypal account or pay for purchased goods using a credit card.

Pygma Consulting

Built from a custom design into wordpress, extremely basic information providing website.
All forms are validated using a jQuery validation script, all forms also use ajax to submit posted information. Other additional features include a Jquery accordion based news feed on the left and the same script is used to display some of the content like the "Our Team" page.


This website was for a popular South African take away and was built while i was employed by So interactive www.sointeractive.co.za, an online media agency. The site is built on worpdress and has 2 custom areas. The menu which is built on a custom plugin and the Showcase which is also a custom built area.


Socrati is an exclusive ladies and men's store specializing in footwear, ladies handbags and accessories for men. This site is built on wordpress with a custom plugin developed for the shoe and handbag catalog.
