Starting out by creating websites as business startups, Tom turned his attention to crafting websites for businesses, ideas, and projects to help their visions and dreams get off the ground.
Tom has specialized in creating fully functional websites on WordPress on since 2014 working on a vast range of products that has allowed him to gather a wealth of knowledge and experience across a number of markets.
Tom has a great passion for clean design that captures those viewing the site and absorbs them in, exceptional UX allowing ease of use by both the user and the client, and working with clients helping bringing their ideas to life and reducing their pain points creating a more efficient workflow. This means that the website is more than just a tool for communicating information.
In his spare time, Tom likes to explore the great outdoors visiting national parks and manor houses throughout England and Wales with his wife and two children and playing computer games.

Cess joined activ as a franchisee back in 2008 and has seen a huge number of technology changes in that time. Always keen to get into the code & the architecture, she now acts as Strategic Technical Advisor to Head Office.
A self-confessed nerd, Cess is in her element knee deep in code, spreadsheets and data. She has built thousands of websites in her time, and believes in the philosophy “if there isn’t a solution out there, we’ll build one.” But it’s the freedom that comes with being your own boss that has kept her with Activ, fitting her work around her passion for mountain biking in the Bluestack Mountains, where she lives with her husband and 2 dogs.
