What I do
Welcome! This is a temporary portfolio website that I am using to give an overview of my Web Development and I.T. related skills. I am very passionate about new technologies - I enjoy helping to make people's lives easier by connecting them to the powers of modern technology. I am particularly interested in the startup scene and would love to get involved with solving more of the worlds problems using software. I am a cofounder of the rapidly growing Construction Productivity App, ViewPro. I also like to play music, host social events, meet new people and solve puzzles. Why not get in touch, even just to say hello if anything else! -
HTML5 & CSS
Sometimes you might want to build a website the old fashioned way, and to begin you need to know some HTML and CSS. Why not book a lesson with me to get you started today!
I am a full stack web developer and can build fully-functioning web apps in Ruby on Rails or in NodeJS. Check out my github for more information!
I have built many many websites. I can build sites either from scratch, or using with the help of popular CSS libraries such as Bootstrap, or even using the worlds most popular CMS: WordPress.
I like optimising computers to run at their peak. Just because a computer is old doesn’t mean it should be really slow, a little maintenance can make a huge difference.
Networking & Printing
Why can’t networks and printers just work?! Printers can be a real pain to set up, and as for networks…! I have years of experience setting people up with Networks, Printers, and even Networked Printers!
Images and photography
I have played around with photos manipulation for many years. I have sometimes made graphics for websites. I enjoy making images look sharp and attractive. For example, every image in this section has been processed by me!
I am an expert in using AutoCAD. I have created many macros and scripts to automate repetitive procedures. Some of my latest scripts include some automatic plotting buttons, simple UCS management, and a customised purge function to clean up specific objects from a drawing file. I have spent close to 15,000 hours using AutoCAD.
I also enjoy proofreading articles/documents/CV’s. I check for grammar, spelling, sentence structure, readability, formatting, consistency, and overall flow.

Freebies! Keep an eye out here for free advice on keeping your computer up to speed and running smoothly.
While I study in the Web Development Immersive course at General Assembly, I regularly visit a particular folder of mine called WDI7. I keep this folder in my Dropbox for safe keeping. However, every time I open a new terminal, I have to navigate down to this folder. This is proving to be a bit[…]
Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, GoogleDrive, Copy, Amazon… and that’s only the mainstream services! Now that world internet speeds are steadily climbing (well at least in countries other than Australia, ahem…), people are turning to the cloud for their backup solutions. Once upon a time we relied on 3.5″ Floppy disks, CD’s, USB sticks or External Hard Disk Drives.[…]
