a little about me

A little bit tech, a little bit gym, a little bit beach life. I’m an English born and bred, Sydney sider with a passion for everything web. I take on freelance work for everything from simple digital design, to new website developments and long term digital marketing campaigns. I excell in areas I’m pushed to grow in and I am constantly hungry for new ideas to implement, and new technologies to adapt into my work.

At home I’m a gym junkie, lover of outdoors and good food.

I’ll be out somewhere, active and well fed, surrounded by 1 or 200 good people and no doubt on my 2nd or 3rd coffee. I’m about sci-fi, salt water, occasional home cooking and creating pretty things either on my computer or just plain ole simple with my hands and sweat.
