I am Generation X with all the technology traits of a Generation Z, perhaps even Generation Alpha. I’ve been hooked on digital technology since the mid 1980s and as a serial learner, educator and tech entrepreneur, I spend most of my time building digital experiences, doing my PhD and mentoring entrepreneurs.
Despite starting my work life as an accountant and auditor, I quickly moved into tech, where my passion and ability lies. I have started several businesses and worked in large corporations internationally since 1991 at all levels.
Web Design, Development & Digital Marketing
I learnt HTML and PERL and wrote my first e-commerce web site in 1994. Since then I’ve consistently learnt new technologies and techniques and am fully versed in linux servers, photoshop, wordpress, search engine optimisation, analytics and integrating technologies into digital marketing campaigns.
I design and develop mobile apps for iOS devices up to the latest versions and my experience in the digital user experience and digital marketing ensures that the user is considered first and the app will not fail.
I mentor those who are new to startups who are looking to accelerate their ideas into solid business models right through to funding, launch, growth and exit. My approach is based on my own experience of failure and success in my own entrepreneurial endeavours since the age of 15.
I started with Apple and MS Dos in the 1980s, migrated to Windows at University and bought a Mac in 2012 so I could learn about them again. I ran Windows on it as I was sure I couldn’t live without it.
I deleted Windows finally in 2016, having not used it much for the previous 3 years.
