Hi. My name is Peter Brady.
I'm a UK-based ...
I help non-technical stakeholders in UK-based companies and charities evaluate, scope, manage, deliver, and future-proof enterprise-grade Drupal websites and web applications.
Like some digital version of Frankenstein’s monster, your Drupal site is now this clumsy, lumbering beast. You feel that it's lost all purpose in life and that the poor thing is of no real use to anybody. Your staff are scared to approach it, let alone touch it. You can’t get it to do what your stakeholders ask you for. And nobody can agree on what the hell to do with it.
Fortunately, I probably do.
I help people figure out the best course of action for their legacy (and future) Drupal sites, as follows.
Whatever challenges you're facing with your Drupal site, don't worry, we can figure it out.
"Pete has been amazing to work with, especially as we know nothing about web developing! He took over our site and has made it into something that we can use and update ourselves really easily.
He always explains things to us in a way that makes sense, and in English, not developer-speak! And we especially love the videos he makes to teach us how to implement changes!
We feel like Pete is an extended part of our team because he cares about helping us to make the website support the work that EYNP does.What's great about working with Pete and not an agency is how accessible and easy to contact he is — plus he's super efficient!"
EYNP Programme Manager

"...there's no guarantee that you will find someone as dependable as Peter. I’m only pleased that we did!
From the very beginning Peter impressed me with his attention to detail, diligence, and care in helping with our site.
Peter has provided valuable insight as we plan future development of the site, and I have come to consider him an extended member of my team."
Head of Global Communications
"When we approached Peter to work on a new Drupal project, we were looking for someone who could deliver quickly, following the specs whilst adding experience and Drupal specific knowledge to the table. Luckily we found the exact match.
We were so happy that we immediately asked him to jump on to another Drupal project which he again delivered with perfect timing, despite part of the scope not being very clear from the beginning.
Working with Peter was an absolute pleasure — also thanks to his flexibility, excellent communication skills and honesty."
Web & Social Collaboration Functional Lead
Many of my project engagements are covered by NDA's. So I'm not able to talk about all of my projects here. Instead, here are a few I can talk about — from the 60+ different companies, charities, social enterprises, and non-profits I've worked with over the years.
Consulted and developed with Tate Britain on the migration of a 10-year old legacy site and CMS to the Drupal 7 platform.
I worked with Comic Relief over several years, helping them to deliver their Red Nose Day and Sport Relief campaigns through back-end Drupal module development, Drupal front-end development, and Drupal training.
I developed BMJ's first suite of mobile-friendly, responsive websites, back in 2012.
Although we're on Drupal 8 and 9 at the moment, there was a time when Drupal 6 was the "bees knees".
I provided technical review services for Packt Publishing's book — Drupal 6 Theming Cookbook - back in 2012 in the heyday of Drupal 6.
The people I've helped have said some very nice things over the years.
"Due to a mixture of work-load and looming deadlines we were looking for a freelance developer to join us for the development phase of a new build project.
We were looking for someone with a good understanding of Drupal, who could deliver quickly and who had a good eye for detail when it came to implementation.
I'm very happy that we found Peter.
From our first call, Peter was very friendly and really took time to understand the key requirements of this project.
Peter's workflow and development updates made it remarkably easy to work with him. All deadlines that were made were met without issue (some of which were quite tight), and all the inevitable problems you'd expect to encounter during a web build were dealt with and resolved quickly.
Peter has been a pleasure to work with. The development phase itself and the aftercare have been fantastic. We're very glad to have found him and we hope to have the opportunity to work with him again on many future projects."
We Are North West
"Peter joined us on a Drupal project, which was half built but left in a sorry-state by a previous freelancer.
From our introductory phone call, he was incredibly friendly and took time to understand what we were trying to achieve; asking questions and taking a genuine interest in the project (an online archive of a famous Graphic Designer).
"Pete has been a terrific consultant/developer for The Bookseller and has helped us launch a totally new, Drupal-driven website in record time, on budget and with excellent results.
He's pragmatic, creative and always thinking about delivering the best solution and is very good at communicating with and listening to his clients.
We are looking forward to working with him on future projects and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking for a brilliant consultant/developer who genuinely cares about what he does."
"Working with Peter was an absolute pleasure — thanks to his flexibility, excellent communication skills and honesty."

"...the project was delivered in 6 weeks in a secure and rock-solid implementation..."
