Personal stuff

Born in London and now living in regional South Australia (the clue in my business name – Mount Gambier 🙂 ).

I ask a lot of questions. This is both in my personal and professional life. I love understanding how something works and then finding a way to make it work better.

I love both cats and dogs.

I hate the gym but love Zumba.

I’m still trying to meditate – I love having a creative mind and having my mind quiet sometimes will make it even more creative.

I still read science fiction and fantasy books even though my form teacher told me that I would grow out of it (I was eleven years old at the time).

I love to learn and spend a part of every week learning something new. Sometimes this is professional (websites and social media) or sometimes something else entirely.

I belong to several groups in the local community including Lakes Rotary, Naracoorte Toastmasters and Women in Business and Regional Development.

I haven’t had a ‘proper job’ since 1996 when I started my own business as an Information Technology (IT) contractor.


I’ve been in IT in one form or another since the late 80’s, starting out as a computer operator, then moving into programming, analyst programming and then creating websites.

I moved into creating websites professionally because a local business group asked me whether I thought a quote they had received for their website was a good quote. They knew that I had created my own website and some friends website too. I was shocked at how expensive it was especially since they are a non for profit group. I said I could create a website for less that half that price so I submitted a formal quote and got the work.

I am a self-confessed geek but has the ability to turn ‘geek speak’ into normal English so that website design becomes understandable to non-geeks.

I love sharing my knowledge and making things easy for people to understand. My last maths teacher used to say that if I didn’t understand it, it wasn’t because I was dumb it was because she wasn’t teaching it right!

As I mentioned in the personal part I ask lots of questions.

This works for your business because I will create you a website that works with your business. I admit that I didn’t do this when I initially started my business, then clients would give me feedback that the website wasn’t working for them. They didn’t have anyone to update it in their business so I can do that for you or teach you how to do it yourself.

I create websites that work with your micro or small business because I understand how your business works. This is partly because I’ve asked the questions and because I’ve been running my own micro business for years. I worked for BIG business and small business so I understand business systems.

I work with you to create your website that works for your business and for your clients.

If this resonates with you either drop me a line or let me know about your project and I’ll be in touch.
