"If you don't take risks, you will always work for someone who does."

Welcome to my personal website!

This site is a design and layout experiment - it's not pretty or perfect (like my Nelson NZ website design studio work), but it's fun! This place let's me try out some cool web design techniques in my own personal space on the interwebs.

For privacy and ethical reasons, I am not on social media. Instead, find out more about the real me by connecting the old fashioned way - by phone, text or email.

It is a pleasure having you here. Read some old-school blog archives, read about my humble beginnings, or visit my full-time design studio at Tintagel Nelson.
