About Me

I am a web and application developer (and maybe a bit of a designer) from Perth, Western Australia. When I am not working at my normal day job, I develop and design websites or applications for fun – yes – for fun!

I love the endless possibilities when it comes to web & application development and I am on a never ending quest to come up with “that idea” which makes me incredibly rich and famous.

Work so far:

The sites I have developed so far which I am not too ashamed to promote are:

  • FWDitON.com – collects all the funny emails/videos (does surprisingly well traffic-wise)
  • StyleIgnite.com – a CSS style repository (a good idea but I have never given it enough attention)
  • CarstairsEstateAgency.com.au – a real estate agency listing (small local market)
  • Statuso.com – website for an iPhone application I am involved with
  • IconPot.com – really simple site which has proved quite popular in the web development community
  • PostedApp.com – my iPhone application

Many of these sites are fairly complex in features and back-end processing. They all have a somewhat decent design (I think…) too.

Tools of the Trade:

I pretty much use a Mac solely these days – so here are my tools of the trade:

  • Language of Choice: PHP 5
  • Database of Choice: MySQL 5
  • Java Script Library of Choice: jQuery
  • Framework of Choice: CodeIgniter
