Award winning web designer, publisher of sites of national cultural significance

I have designed websites since 1997. Several sites have been designated 'sites of national cultural significance' in Australia because of both their social and cultural content and their technical design. I continue to develop interactive, data driven educational resources designed for on and offline use.
I offer template based sites designed for clients, including training in site maintenance and content addition. Fees based on consultation and design objectives.

Website design

  • Small business websites
  • Personal professional websites
  • Client-side content driven on and offline resources
  • Educational content


Writer, blogger, essayist

In 1980 I was commissioned to write an educational book on Aboriginal land rights by a national coalition of peak church councils. I have both before and since written numerous academic essays on topics ranging from history, culture, theology, literary criticism, philosophy, anthropology and more recently on climate change and the psychology of denial. I am currently setting up a blog to encourage discussion of these latter themes.
