About me & my team

About me & my team

In 2004 my first online portal directory website was incorporated - which I still own today. Through this, I've learnt a ton about owning and running a successful web-based business. All SEO is self-taught with excellent results. The business then expanded into Australia, franchising into different locations. I also manage a number of restaurants own websites.

Previously I've built large portal directories in the age concern and youth services area.

Nowadays, building websites using Wordpress is my thing. Years ago I never liked Wordpress, it was clunky and very hard to use. Not so today. With a ton of fantastic themes to choose from it enables me to build extremely modern functional websites that are much easier to update and way cheaper. With the support of Flywheel, my hosting base is solid and reliable.

Since Covid-19, I've had to think outside the square a bit.  My restaurant clients are screaming out to add online ordering to their websites. In years past, when I've looked into this it's just been too expensive. But I did a pile of new research and managed to get this free but very sophisticated online ordering system white labeled for my business.

Owning the restaurant directory www.eatout.nz (currently under renovation) helps to advertise my restaurant clients even more and now integrates with this new online ordering system beautifully.

My passion outside work is walking and exploring our beautiful country - New Zealand. Another website project of mine is  www.freewalks.nz - Enjoy!
