Paul Chapman

Paul Chapman

Web Developer

 

Expertise: Paul makes websites using WordPress and the popular Bootstrap framework and has worked on several sites for Black Vanilla’s clients. He also writes features for local magazines and is part of our team of copywriters.

 

Background: After 15 years in the IT sector, Paul left his job to become a full-time dad to his three children, who are all full of life and mischief. In between wiping noses, standing on Lego and scraping food off the floor, he taught himself how to create websites.

 

Why we love Paul: Websites are an integral part of today’s communication landscape and although we love writing words for the online audience, we’re happy to admit that the tech stuff isn’t our forte. We rely on Paul for all things digital, plus when he comes into the office he also makes a good cup of tea.

 

Outside of Work: Paul is a keen runner and also enjoys cycling. He can normally be found listening to music and in quiet moments he likes to read. Paul has an interest in photography and image editing, and he loves a good quiz.

 

Favourite film: Apocalypse Now.

 

Favourite holiday destination: Vietnam for the varying landscape, food and people.
