Dave’s always been freelance. First as a musician while he was studying, and more recently as a web designer working mostly with independent business owners.

After starting out designing websites for musician friends, he built a solid reputation for himself on Upwork, gaining clients in the UK and overseas.

When he began networking with other freelancers online, Dave soon saw the value in community. He’s now an active member of several groups and has recently launched a new project especially for freelancers.

Work Notes is a resource full of advice that helps freelancers tackle the more practical aspects of running a business. It’s Dave’s way of giving back to the freelance community. And this is his story so far.
