a bit about me

A User Experience Designer with over 13 years of experience in design and font­end development.

I began creating websites at the age of 17 in my hometown Auckland, New Zealand. At the age of 25 I head to the EU for my OE and have since been floating around the world for 6 years working for companies in London, Amsterdam and Lisbon.

It was time for me to head closer to home and being the world's most liveable city, Melbourne seemed a great place to perch.

So here I am and I've brought a full spectrum of experience with me. A master in Photoshop and Illustrator, I'm also advanced in HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript with plenty of experience in mobile app design, flash, print media and HTML emails.

I design and build responsive websites using the mobile first and modular methodologies. I enjoy seeing the entire process through including concept, wire­framing, design, development and user testing.

In my pass time, I enjoy making music, snowboarding, wakeboarding, rugby, cricket, tennis and am always happy to join ya for that after work drink ;D

my music

I played piano from an early age and when I was 12, began creating music on my computer. I use Logic Pro to create music ranging from soft to heavy, all depending on what i'm feeling at the time. My alias is Nature Machine and you can check out my songs on Soundcloud.
