My experience with creating websites on the Internet ranges from simple static websites with a few pages to complex websites with a variety of applications. Although web development usually covers the main non-design aspects of creating websites, in most cases I have also done the graphic design for the websites I have created. I have acquired some graphic design skills over the years, especially in the print shop I owned for 25 years.

Apart from the many different jobs I have had over the years, the experience I gained working for 25 years in a small outdoor advertising print shop was the most instructive.
During those years, I was lucky enough to experience first-hand the revolution in the marketing and advertising world brought about by the World Wide Web and its impact.
The print shop was part of the old advertising world, and the tools of the Internet brought with them a very exciting new world that was increasingly concerned with concepts such as "inbound marketing", "driving traffic to a website", "lead generation" and the common goal of increasing sales. The experiences from both the old and new worlds have led me to gain experience and insight into marketing techniques that are most effective in today's dynamically changing world.
Prior to entering the printing industry, I was a marketing manager and general manager at two different distribution companies representing well-known international brands.
Although I have spent much of my career in sales and marketing, I have always been involved in some form of software development over the years. Starting in 1980, I was directly involved in software programming for about six years. Since then I have been involved in web development on the side, and in 2000 I created a website for my first internet client. To date, I have developed websites for more than forty clients, done search engine optimisation and used social media and digital advertising techniques.
Learning is a lifelong process, but some experiences will help you mature and gain better insight into some of life's complex challenges.
