"Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code is a violent psychopath who knows where you live."
Hello, I'm Stuart Shepherd and I design and build websites.
I'm a highly experienced full-stack front and backend web developer and designer. I'm originally from London, England but now based down under in Sydney, Australia. I'm currently working for a digital creative agency called Create Studios. However, I do sometimes I create websites for other people.
All my websites are created using the latest technology and standards to produce websites that work no matter what device they are being viewed on. I am experienced and well educated in all aspects of the web and I write clean code that is well thought out, robust and easy to maintain.

Primarily I'm a Microsoft .Net MVC developer with extensive knowledge of developing bespoke custom websites (using a mixture of C#, Bootstrap, HTML5, CSS and jQuery) and developing tailored solutions on premier content management platforms like Kentico and Umbraco, focusing on both the CMS user and the site visitor experience to build dynamic, fast and engaging online experiences.
