Since 2008, I’ve worked with dozens of companies all around Australia, New Zealand and SE Asia, building and maintaining websites and managing servers. My first professional development job was to build a website for a small local business.
Since then, I’ve worked on everything from simple small business websites, large eCommerce sites, Enterprise client / server apps, data migrations and Web services.
I specialise in the back-end infrastructure and server environment, particularly Linux servers. I’ve managed Ubuntu, Debian, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS and FreeBSD in production. Nowadays I work mostly in the Amazon AWS cloud, building virtualised server environments.
In 2012, I had a job as a Junior System Administrator maintaining FreeBSD and RHEL servers contracted to a large eCommerce service with data centers in Sydney, Singapore and Hong Kong.
In 2017, I was hired on a one month contract to update some code on a website for a Sydney media publishing company. After extending my contract for a further month, the company hired me as their Technical Lead.
I currently lead a team of 4 other developers and maintain over 70 websites. We are heavy WordPress users because it is a flexible, powerful platform and allows us to build robust and awesome applications.
I directly oversee the development of all the company websites, including project management. I’m responsible for the server environment, web application security, performance and scalability, as well as the day to day maintenance.
Here’s a few of the sites I’ve worked on over the years.
