I pride myself on staying up to date with the latest trends and developments in all things web / internet / technology. People often come to me for advice on these topics because they recognise the fact that I like to live on the bleeding edge of ‘what’s new’. I have invested hundreds of hours into reading blogs, following up on new start-ups, and staying abreast of how it all works. More than a casual user however, I like to dig deeper and understand the more ‘geeky’ side of the new technology, and what is possible with it.
I have had a strong interest in design for as long as I can remember, and often enjoy surfing the net for great looking websites. My role at ShowRibbons helped me to further hone my Illustrator and Photoshop skills, and I have also designed many of the components for the other websites that I have built. I have also created Logos and icons for local organisations.
Having grown up using computers, my computer skills match that of many geeks. I have been a Mac user for 20 years and a ‘power user’ for 10. I have also helped Titirangi Baptist Church install and deploy a Mac Server, and have been the go-to ‘trouble shooter’ for all the TBC staff, for both Windows and Mac. I also dabble with Linux! Currently I am in the process of teaching myself Objective-C, so that I can write iPhone Apps.
