I started with Deakin University in 2013 in the role of Digital Support Officer in the Faculty of Arts and Education. Typically my role includes design and production of new Faculty web pages and the redesign and development of existing web pages. I also assist other Faculty staff in the design and development of web pages relevant to their areas. When required, I’m also working on the migration of website content from WMT and teamsite to the new content management system Squiz.
I have approximately 10 years of experience in developing websites, online stores and custom web based applications with PHP and Coldfusion in a Linux environment. I have completed the Google AdWords partner certification. This certification covers the fundamental aspects of online advertising and campaign management, using Google tools like AdWords, Analytics and DoubleClick.
Outside of work at Deakin University, I race road bikes at state level. I’m also involved in several online ventures, one in particular has proved itself very successful and has been headquartered in San Francisco since 2010.
