Welcome to my new, and still evolving website. Please bear with me whilst the inclusion of new content and image galleries takes place.
I’ve had this website for about ten years now and it was purely focused on my User Experience and Web Project Management skill sets.
As time has moved on and my earlier hobbies have become small businesses in their own right, I have closed some of my other websites to reduce the time spent on managing them rather than being “out there” taking photos or creating paintings.
I’ve been working in various areas of “the internet” since 2000 and after a few years developing sites, I gravitated towards managing implementations.
This site and the blog articles I’ve written are partly about sharing my experience and knowledge but also to help me learn from others when feedback is left.
Over the years, I’ve found that as much as I enjoy the development side of the web, my forte is in the user experience, architecture and management.
Whilst my Masters degree is in Computer Science and User Experience has been my line of work for over a decade, I am at heart a creative person and am active in the arts, crafts and photographic world as well.
I grew up in the heart of southern Africa. It is truly magical with places of natural raw beauty and an incredible variety in wildlife that has been inspirational to me – especially in my art.
I am registered as a Professional Artist with The Society for All Artists and am part of the Association of Animal Artists and The Wildlife Artist Society International. I am also a member of the Association of Open Photographers which has been, for me, a great to place to grow my photography skills.
In 2015 I started teaching in User Experience, Drawing & Painting, and knitting. Yes, knitting is also a creative undertaking that I’ve done for many years and thoroughly enjoy, especially when I’m making something for one of the animal charities I’m involved in!
I like to believe that through teaching, I can help others experience the joy in creating their own website, pet portrait or knitted doggie jumper. My courses, painting holidays and workshops will soon be available through Udemy and on this website.
