Sunshine Coast, Australia
I've been a web designer & developer since 2002, and I've been a computer geek since I got my first video game on the Commodore 64 and played with my dad's punch cards.
Where Am I?Web developer and proud team member of the incredible Various Artists in the lovely Sunshine Coast, Australia.

Omega Institute for Holistic Studies
I developed this logo for the Omega Institute’s cafe during my time working at this holistic retreat center in 2011.
In November 2011, I assisted with Omega’s content migration for their new Drupal powered website. The project involved writing PHP scripts to map content from their old mySQL database to Drupal’s database, in order to automatically create nodes for Drupal content.
Allowing Natural Death
Allowing Natural Death is a grassroots website for Robin Taft, a strong advocate for end of life care. The vintage inspired design integrates personal elements from Robin’s life, including her love of paper.
In late 2009 I launched a website for Oliver’s Naturals, a vegetarian cafe located in Troy, NY. The design employs a fun use of color and I very much enjoyed creating such a friendly, happy feel to the site.
Unfortunately, the cafe closed in 2010, so the website now exists as an archived example WordPress theme.
