He is skilled at identifying the needs of mobile web users and is available to consult businesses internationally.

We can help, by ensuring information fits onto a smartphone display and that it’s easy to navigate.’ builds its clients mobile-friendly websites, which appear automatically whenever they are accessed by a smartphone user.
