I’m a Web Accessibility Consultant with my own company Coolfields Consulting. I work with organisations to help them improve the accessibility of their websites – testing the websites for accessibility, and advising the designers and developers on how to fix issues found.
I have also written and presented detailed training courses on accessibility for developers I’m also a WordPress developer, and I’ve built many accessible WordPress websites for clients – both large and small.
I’m member of the Make WordPress Accessible Team and I’ve spoken on accessibility to many WordCamps and other WordPress meetups.
Outside of work you’re likely to find me playing my guitar, recording my next album or performing at local open mic evenings.
WordPress powers so many of the world’s websites now, and I feel it’s important that WordPress itself and developers who build WordPress themes, plugins and sites strive to be accessible as possible.
I’ve got around 15 years experience in web accessibility and I’m keen to share my knowledge with the WordPress community to empower others to raise the level of accessibility within WordPress.
