Update: Joomla 3.3 based real estate website. http://portablehomesportugal.com/ Light customization on the theme,localization, logo design, SEO, plus some modifications of the real estate manager functionality. Fresh new website design for a dental clinic. Based on Wordpress Butterbelly theme with a complete rework of color scheme, header, footer and functionality. Can be seen at: www.orident.eu Update: complete rework of www.zestlifestyle.net. Now based on Joomla 3.0 customized theme. Main focus on portfolio presentation and ease of use. A brand new Joomla-driven website at: http://www.kazoocomms.com/ An elegant PR and marketing company website based on SJ Joomla 3.0, Twitter Bootstrap and Unite Nivo Slider. Customized and modified look and feel to fit the overall concept. New addition to Wordpress portfolio - http://allotmentresources.org/ A great resource about all allotment fans out there built around the free iHealth theme. The focus is on efficiency of UI with most notable plugins in use - Mingle forum and The events calendar. Other outstanding feature is the great search functionality achieved by combining Live search and Relevanssi for an all-in one Ajax-based solution. It's at the stage of SEO and with the potential and aim to become a self-sufficient community-driven environment. Another website added to my portfolio: http://europecharm.com/ It's a very innovative personal travel planner. Developed in Wordpress, heavily customized theme. Currently in the process of SEO and marketing campaigning. I am moving more and more towards Wordpress, replacing Joomla because of the higher degree of flexibility, better SEO and more adequate support. Any Wordpress projects more than welcome. As things stand in the past few months I am getting more and more involved with web design and development. I have just finished a news portal meant to be administered by some 20 people in Joomla and consider this as a kick start in the field. One more project added to my portfolio. http://zestlifestyle.net/ A business website selling mobile homes and caravans in Portugal. The whole process included full 2 step migration from Joomla 1.0 to 2.5. Responsive template based on T3 Framework which was specially customized and adjusted to client's requirements. Full backup implementation. All completed within 3 weeks. I am in the process of SEO optimization and developing marketing campaign for the same client right now. The facts: top 10 in Google for all chosen keywords. Any Wordpress based websites as well as HTML,CSS and PHP projects are of a particular interest to me. Following the technological tide towards mobile devices I am focusing mostly on responsive templates such as those made by Joomla Art but that all depends on the purposes and requirements set by the client. Aside of that you can find below some of my past work history. I have been working for a UK travel agency for the past 3 years. The roles taken while climbing the hierarchy were sales agent,sales supervisor, flights department specialist, product manager. I have written more than 2000 unique travel articles, maintained various databases and a CRM system as well as a gallery of more than 10 000 photos. Last but not least I have built up business contacts with product managers and CEOs worldwide. Feel free to check out examples of my work at www.luxurytrips.co.uk and www.travelsuitsme.com My specialties are: web development and design, Wordpress, custom theme development, plugins, SEO. Personal attributes I consider most valuable are: accuracy, creativity and loyalty. I have extensive knowledge on Wordpress CMS, HTML, CSS, PHP Adobe Photoshop and Linux administration. Main fields of expertise and interest: IT, Web Design and Development, Website Project Management, Travel and Tourism.
