About

Heart

I believe in putting people first. In every project I make sure technology hurdles don’t get in the way of giving people what they want‚ in a way that makes sense to them.

Some people call this usability or user experience...

I just call it being human.

“Technology should work hard for people. Not the other way around.”

Web development is my core-strength. But, as you would expect from a Multimedia graduate‚ I also have skills in photography‚ film‚ audio production‚ animation and online marketing strategy.

As a team leader I believe in empowering people to do great work. ‘Wind people up and let them go’ is my mantra. But‚ I also believe in honest feedback and doing what it takes to get the best result for the organisation.

Suffice it to say‚ I’m no stranger to taking a project from blank slate to finished product and making sure it gets results.
