I make design & code (& other things).

I work a lot in the arts and for small businesses and NGOs. I’ve made websites for artists of all types, literary awards, translation agencies, vehicles manufacturers, engineering firms, and a wide variety of projects in agencies.

My aim is to simplify and demystify the whole process of building, designing, using, and maintaining a website for people, organisations, and companies who want to be responsible for and have full, uncomplicated control over their website.

I provide consulting and advice on all aspects of design and development, accessibility, performance and security, localisation, and general webserver and hosting support.


  1. Inclusive design is the first thing.
  2. Things I care about: Intersectionality, Accessibility, Usability, Aesthetics, Performance.
  3. I’m good anywhere in the LAMP & CSS/JS/HTML stacks.
  4. Things I use daily: CSS, HTML, PHP, WordPress, JavaScript & jQuery, MySQL, Vagrant, Git, Bash, WP-CLI.

Things I’m solid in:

  • a11y. Yup, four incomprehensible characters for big subject. For me accessibility is semantic HTML, CSS, responsive design, UX & UI, typography, aesthetics, image, video, and media management, structured data, and generally making things easier for people. Everything I do comes back to this.
  • Content management and structuring data and information.
  • Project management and consulting.
  • GRPR / DSVGO, Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), privacy and customer protection
  • Webhosting setup & management, Apache server setup, Linux VM setup. Necessary stuff like .htaccess, SSH, caching & performance, opcache, security, HTTPS & HSTS, Let’s Encrypt.
  • Also: photography, image editing, & Photoshop Affinity Photo (I use FujiFilm, Panasonic, and Canon); video, camera, editing, & Final Cut Pro X; and pretty much anything in MacOS.

WordPress & adjacent stuff I write and / or use on the regular:

  • Custom functions and plugins, theme development, Advanced Custom Fields, WP REST API & AJAX, WPML, WooCommerce, media handling, DataTables, WP-CLI, NextCloud, Laravel.


I live in Berlin. Other cities mountain and /or ocean-adjacent are attractive to me. Most interesting stuff is on my blog, supernaut
