Hi there, I'm Scott.

I'm a Canadian freelance web designer, developer and copywriter currently based in Osaka, Japan.

This site is still under construction but you can view some of my previous works and get to know me and my services better.

Web Services

Build a website that both your customers and Google will love.

I take a user-first and SEO-focused approach to responsive web design that gives my clients higher conversions and lower bounce rates. Let your brand reach it's potential online with a website that stands out from the rest and is accessible by all.

Custom coded and engineered to grow with your business.

I hand-code 100% of every website I develop to ensure higher search rankings, better user experiences, and scalability. I specialize in using headless CMS (content management systems) so that you can manage and edit your website without needing to rely on bloated cookie-cutter templates and website builders. WordPress, Shopify, and more, whichever CMS you prefer, I have you covered.

Tell your story while turning visitors into repeat customers.

Sharing your story isn't always easy. Telling it in a way that promotes your product or services, even harder. I take the time to understand your brand and industry to write easy-to-read copy that converts. From telecommunications and agriculture to realty and more, I've written copy in various fields that converts first-time readers into repeat customers.

From conception to launch, I've got you covered.

Customer journeys, search engine optimization, accessibility, and more. There is a lot to cover when building your digital presence. I'll walk with you to put your business on the right path and help you avoid common digital marketing pitfalls. Evolve your brand with a strategy tailored to your business and budget.



Tychron.co | Design & Development

Tychron is a leading telecommunications company helping businesses deliver better conversations with unparralled voice and messaging APIs.View Project

I completely redesigned Tychron's existing templated WordPress site using headless WordPress and Next.JS. By upgrading the site to use Headless WordPress, I was able to increase page load speeds by over 100%. I also redesigned and developed their API documentation site.

"Scott has done a fantastic job of migrating our website from WordPress to a custom-designed site; he's highly professional, proficient at his craft, and has a keen eye for detail. We plan to have a long-term engagement with him as he is currently working on a UI refresh. We highly recommend Scott to anyone looking for engaging content, top-notch productivity, and a highly optimized site" - Mike Burlingame, Tychron CEO

Storydigital.ca | Development

I worked alongside UX designer Jamie Malott to develop a headless WordPress site for Story Digital, a fullstack digital marketing agency based in Ontario. I work with Story Digital on a continuous basis as their lead web developer for clients in a variety of industries including agriculture, realty, non-profit and more.View Project

For this project, I transformed Story Digital's existing WordPress site and made it headless. By using Gatsby.JS as a static frontend to serve dynamic content from WordPress, I was able to help Story Digital build a perfect scoring website in Google's lighthouse website audit.

"Scott collaborated wonderfully with our UX designer to build a stunning website for Story Digital. It’s easy to manage with WordPress, loads in an instant and has helped us pull in new leads organically. Scott has helped us deliver many websites over the years that look better and outperform our client’s competitors." - Andrew Douglas, Founder of Story Digital Marketing

Wecoverequine.com | Development

WeCover Equine designs and manufactures custom steel frame riding arenas that are beautiful and can be used all year long. I developed a new headless WordPress site to highlight the dozens of projects they have built across North America.View Project
WeCover needed a faster, more manageable website than their existing Squarespace site to showcase their equine projects on the web. For this project, I developed a new website with Headless WordPress to give WeCover a fast loading and SEO performant site that they can edit themselves.
"Moving from Squarespace to Headless Wordpress has done wonders for our site performance. Beyond the performance, working with Scott also meant we have a great looking website, and an efficient process in building it. We plan to hire him again!" - Jake Warren, Founder of Access 9 Marketing

Gloucesterchurch.ca | Design & Development

Gloucester Presbyterian is a diverse and welcoming church located in Ottawa, Ontario. I designed and developed their new website from the ground-up to build the church a visually appealing and editable digital presence.View Project
For this project, I put together a completely new colour palette, font pairing and theme for the church to create a new and welcoming look. I used Gatsby.JS and headless WordPress to build Gloucester a quick-loading, SEO-performant website that they can easily manage on their own.
"Scott redesigned our website from the ground-up. He created a clean, dynamic, and welcoming look, that's easy to navigate. Scott is a patient and creative designer, who puts his expertise to work with your ideas." - Denise Allen-Macartney, Lead Minister of Gloucester Church, Ottawa
