Front-End Web Developer

I am a Queenstown-based Front-End web developer building things on the internet with WordPress and egg sandwiches. Currently contracting at Active Adventures.

  • My Clients / Projects

  • Queenstown Athletics

    This website was for the Queenstown Athletics club, they had recently re-branded and merged with the Remarkables Runners club. They needed a new website built with a CMS that was modern and easy to use.

  • Wakatipu Rowing Club

    This website was for the Wakatipu Rowing Club, they had never had a website before and always used their Facebook page to publish news articles and events, etc. I created a platform for them to do just that as well as advertise their club and create a stronger online presence.

  • Bespoke Aquariums

    I created this website while working at Kaiser Create Studio. The client had an outdated website and was looking for a fresh new look. I designed and built this website and the client was very pleased with the end result.

  • Rise & Shine Cleaning

    A new company in Queenstown specialising in business, office and services cleaning. They had a brand and just needed a nice looking website to advertise their services and act as a place where potential employees and clients could get in touch.

  • RKS Cleaning Services

    A long time running cleaning company in Queenstown specialising in commercial cleaning services. They had quite an outdated website and so they were looking for a fresh new look where they could give potential clients more information.

  • BetterBuild

    A well established building company within Queenstown who had never had an online presence for their company before contacted me to get them on the internet! I designed and built a website for them as well as set up google business for their company.

  • 2018 Website Portfolio

    Yeah we are in 2019 now crazy. This was the website portfolio that I used through 2018, it's pretty dark and this one is pretty light so maybe that means something, idk.

  • To Do List

    This was just a fun little project I did when I was bored one Sunday and I am pretty happy with the result. It is a material design inspired To Do List and it does what it says, just haven't set up anything to cache user input yet...

  • Text editor website

    The description is in the title for this one, it is a website portfolio built in the style of a text editor..

  • Work Experience

  • Active Adventures

    20th AUG 2018 - Current

    I am currently doing some contract web development for Active Adventures. I am maintaining and building upon their existing SilverStripe based website. I have done a lot of re-de-sign projects and helped make their site more modern and user-friendly.

  • AJ Hackett Bungy

    2nd Feb 2018 - 25th Apr 2018

    Contract work as a Desktop Upgrade Support technician. I built and installed all the new laptops/desktops that are now at the AJ Hackett Bungy sites located around Queenstown. The job in-volved working in a corporate network environment, Windows 1709 and IBIS installation.

  • Kaiser Creative Studio

    18th Sep 2017 - 18th Dec 2017

    I was a Front-End Web developer at Kaiser Creative Studio in Dunedin. My time here taught me some very valuable skills such as how to be adaptable to a companies requirements as the team at Kaiser was quite small. I was not only designing and building websites but designing logo’s, letterheads and signage as well as working with Umbraco in the back end.

  • Freelance/Contract web development

    Jan 2016 - Ongoing

    During my diploma at SIT, I took up freelance web development after a family friend got knowledge of my skills and approached me to build a website for her. The project went well and after that, I grew a fondness for working with clients and bringing their ideas to life. Working as a freelancer taught me not only how to design to a clients specifications but how to communicate with clients and adapt to their evolving ideas.
