I care about what I do and I always try my utmost to do the best for those who value my skills and experience and want to use them to benefit their aims or organisation.
When building a website my first thought is not design, style or imagery, it is the person who will take the trouble to find it, seek it out and use it. There’s no point having a site with all the bells, whistles and options if the content is not accessible and communicated.
I also have something called Kallmann syndrome which makes me fairly unique because just I am one in about 50,000 people who do. It took many years before I could put a label on the condition and know exactly what it was, and even now, when mentioning it to a GP or nurse, the reaction is “what’s that, I’ve never heard of it”.
It all started when my late father bought me a BBC Micro computer. As I explain in more detail here this led to me creating and developing a website about a F1 Grand Prix driver born out of my enthusiasm for motorsport.
In the 20 years since that first site I have developed my website skills and knowledge using various platforms, and widened my expertise into the application of social media as a means to reach and engage with a wider audience.
After working on websites for so long I thought it was time I had my own which is why you find me here.
My values centre around honesty and simplicity. The world is complicated enough without me adding another layer of complication.
What you see is what you get. I don’t like to shout, preferring to work quietly and diligently in the background enabling and facilitating. I’m quiet through a lack of confidence, not because I have nothing to say, and I value those who recognise this rather than just listen to the loudest in the room.
Every photograph you see on this website is one of my own. The scenery on my doorstep is a compelling reason for getting out into the fresh air and, inevitably, I take my phone with me wherever I go.
A scene will sometimes catch my attention, even if its the pier again, because things always look different with the changing seasons, weather, and time of day.
I’m certainly not a prolific taker of photos, but I will be adding to the collection here as time goes by.
