Brief History

Since the 90’s I’ve covered a number of disciplines across the digital spectrum, from web design, user experience and user interface, to project management of some fabulous and exciting digital services and solutions. With an eye for detail I am methodical and level headed in the execution of assignments. I am adept at managing expectations within a pressurised environment across the full length of the project life cycle.

I’ve designed a number of websites for the Australian travel industry in the late 90’s and early 2000, before managing and designing the user experience and interface of the Viator affiliate programs and online B2B delivery systems, which included working with Hotwire, Qantas Holidays, Worldspan and Lonely Planet.

By the end of the noughties I took a more managerial role with The Farm Digital. I was grateful to have managed the delivery of some ground breaking solutions, including Air New Zealand’s “Home Sweet As” campaign, a 3-D world for The Wiggles, Mitsubishi Motors national website, and the design of the Qantas touch screen check-in services.

Recently

More recently, I have worked with Ajilon to craft a set of designs for a mobile app for QLD Health (sorry I can’t publish the images here, but please drop me a line and I’ll be happy to give you a demonstration).

I have also worked with Huegin Consulting to reinvent and elevate their brand in a highly competitive industry of business consulting. I also designed user interfaces and dashboards for a number of technical solutions, including among others: Ergon Energy, Metro Trains Melbourne, QLD Health, NSW Health, State Library of NSW, Thiess, Transfield Services, and a number of other private companies in relation to enterprise software.

For more details please drop me a line and I’ll be happy to hook you up with the eye candy.

Location

I work remotely. I travel to meet and talk to people just like you. In the age of the cloud, with online meetings and communication tools and services it is remarkable just how easily I CAN be contacted.

I live with my wonderful family in the Byron Shire on the north coast of NSW. I’m a firm believer that one day I WILL return to mountain biking with a passion like no other, this belief is compounded by a promise I made to my son that when he’s “of age” we’ll cycle around Australia together (this phrase gives me a little bit of wriggle room before he becomes that age).
