About Your Mate

We are two mates from Hobart, Tasmania who came together over a love of coffee, health & fitness and fellaship. Separately, as want-repreneurs, we both dreamed about launching a start-up in the digital space; to offer the best of our skills to other growing businesses.  Together, we offer a complete website design and digital marketing service to small and medium-sized businesses.

What started as a bit of side hustle, has grown into a collaboration operated by two mates, living in opposite corners of the globe.

We pride ourselves on building strong connections within our networks which lead to lasting, meaningful relationships. We also like our customers to know that we’re here for the long haul, providing web design, technical support and regular website updates, throughout the life of their business.  So rather than a ‘one-hit’ or ‘use once and leave’ service, we like our customers to see us as an ongoing part of their IT and digital marketing team.

We will save you countless hours of pain and frustration associated with tech and digital-related matters, freeing up your time to focus on the more important things.

Profile

Like many people, my work life started at the local supermarket. At 16 I was a checkout operator, by 20 I was a fully qualified butcher and at the age of 21, I took the step up into management.  But I’d always been a bit of a tech junkie and I started to desire a transition away from retail.  I could see that the information technology industry was booming and I was very fortunate to win a role with the University of Tasmania, where career has bloomed. 

If I had to put my finger on it, I’d say that it is my customer-centric thinking, leadership and creativity that has helped me make the successful pivot and transition to this new industry.

I am genuinely passionate about connecting with people on both a business and a personal level, and helping them solve technical problems.

Personally, I love nothing more than taking my young family to Kingston Beach or playing together at the local playground.

Qualifications

Profile

As a self-proclaimed jack of all digital trades, my career has gone full circle over a 15-year period; from design, through project management, business administration and marketing. Having collected experience from a diverse range of businesses and working internationally, I now step beyond the role of website designer to offer strategic insight, marketing know-how and multimedia design prowess.

Professionally I enjoy nothing more than translating your technical and marketing speak into an evocative customer storyline or the creative aspects of website design, including photography and graphic design.

I have found that the best working relationships begin with an open and honest conversation, where trust and friendship are formed.

Personally, one of life’s opportunities has taken my wife and I to live in Norway.  Together, we enjoy a simple lifestyle focused on food, coffee, travel, outdoor activities and CrossFit. Working with video calls and email, I am able to services customers in both Norway and Australia.

Qualifications

  • Master of Business Administration, Australian Institute of Business.
  • Bachelor of Design Studies, Adelaide University.
  • Diploma of  Project Management, The Centre for People Development.
  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, CrossFit Ask.
