This site is still a work in progress...

I am a Web Developer with ten years of experience. The last nine years in Content management. For the past five, I have been the primary web developer for all Oracle Content (UCM) sites at Brisbane City Council.

I'm currently looking for work as a Web Developer. I am not tied to any technology, willing and able to quickly learn and adapt my vast skills to any system.

Looking to branch out and learn new things, work with new people and make some friends. Feel free to contact me with new opportunities!
