Hi my name name is Theo and I'm a currently working as a Front-End developer. I have been designing and developing websites for 3 years and spent about 2 years as an SEO specialist, I studied "Introduction to Web Design" at Boston Business College for a year and moved on to my first role as an SEO intern at an online marketing company and that is where my passion for creating beautiful websites began.
I'm not only pasionate about web, but also gaming, photography and I'm a little obsessed with Star Wars. When I'm not busy designing or developing websites I spend my time playing games online, doing the "Netflix and Chill" thing, making music, occasionally visiting the skate park and golf course(not necessarily one of my best skills). When all is calm and the south african sun treats me well I enjoy a braai with family and friends.

Websites can't just look good, they need to be an experience you won't forget.
With everyone using smart phones it is essential to have a responsive product.
With everything becoming more interactive online today and more people browsing on their smart phones, it is important for me to cater for all devices and browsers, which is exactly what I do. Every new project I take on is designed to be fully responsive, UX/UI centric design is also something I specialize in as I believe a site shouldn't just be a boring read but an experience a user will remember.
Having a good looking functional website is not enough if your business can’t be found and that is where SEO comes in. In the time that I have been working in the industry I have optimized a lot of websites and made them easier to find for users.
Working with a great team with dedicated designers, I have found myself doing the design side of things more part-time, at the same time I have also learned a lot from them and improved on my design skills. Other than just designing websites, I have also designed logo's and business cards.
Development is where my real passion lies as I really enjoy adding cool things on to websites that will enhance the experience, nowadays the mobile experience is extreamly important and that is why every website I develop is fully responsive and optimized for mobile.
Having worked as an SEO Specialist for two years, it has become part of my development process to make sure every website is optomized to perform at its best, Even though copywriting is not one of my strong points, I know how to correctly make use of keywords in Meta data and copy.
