Introduction
Web management. Optimisation. Usability. Analytics. UX Consultant.

I've been doing web-stuff since before it was web-stuff. I’ve been experimenting and working with online communication since the first time I heard a modem carrier tone in June 1986.

Educated as economist, but digital at heart. My aim is to piece all of the bits of the web-jigsaw together and help companies create and maintain web presences & intranets that are effective and innovative.
