What would you like to know?
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 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.
