Web Designer & Developer in Brisbane, Australia

About Me

I'm a web designer and developer based in Brisbane, Australia, focusing on creating great websites for creative people and businesses.

For the past 10 years I have worked with clients large and small, such as Brisbane Airport, QUT and more. About 18 years ago I built my first hobby website. I've have been honing my skills ever since.

In 2008, I graduated with a Bachelor of Creative Industries: Communication Design, returning to QUT in 2010 as part of the tutoring team.

I also have a creative practice composing electronic music under the collaborative banner of Lucky Combs and the Man in the Attic.
