All of the work you see on my portfolio has been designed, coded/developed by my team and I.
I’m a technology solutions specialist working more and more around business design and strategy. I have been working for 12 years in media-tech, web, mobile and software. This work has exposed me to several industries – Finance, Oil and Gas, Higher Education and Media & Advertising.
