Hello. I’m Nick, and I run HandPressed. I’ve been making websites and administering web servers for over 20 years. These days I specialize in WordPress website design and development. I’m based on the Isle of Purbeck, in Dorset.
When I’m not making websites I’m advocating for (re-)decentralizing the web, reading (some of my favourite books are The Dharma Bums and Big Sur by Jack Kerouac, Wolf: A False Memoir and A Good Day to Die by Jim Harrison, Fear and Loathing in America by Hunter S. Thompson, A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar, and Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life by Jon Lee Anderson), watching films (favourites are The Big Lebowski, Withnail and I, Wonder Boys, Almost Famous, All the President’s Men, Pulp Fiction, and Dazed and Confused), listening to music, and walking in the beautiful Dorset countryside.
