I’m Dan Cryer, a freelance web developer living in Bollington, Cheshire. I’ve been doing development professionally for over ten years now, and as a hobby since my early teens. I’ve been involved in more projects than I could or would want to count.
Prior to setting up on my own, I was managing the development team at Real and Smooth Radio. In the year or so I was there, we built a web publishing platform and launched nine web sites using it.
Outside of work, I’m engaged and have two cats. I enjoy spending time with family and being outdoors. I also volunteer with Bollington Air Cadets, where I’m in charge of the cadets’ training and development, I’m also in training myself to become a commissioned officer.
